The State Board of Elections and N.C. Division of Motor Vehicles have joined to launch a service that allows for online voter registration, according to WNCT.
Many county boards of elections are limited in their ability to operate, given statewide calls for people to stay at home and to limit interactions with others, WCNT reports.
While voters register or update their information online, county boards will keep confirming voter eligibility, and the online process will use the signature on file at the NCDMV to authorize applications.
North Carolinians who are eligible to vote but do not have a history with the NCDMV still have to fill out paper registration forms and send them to their county board of elections to register, WNCT reports.
