​Board of Elections





To provide the citizens of Robeson County with the maximum opportunity to become registered voters and to vote all primaries and election irrespective of race, sex, religion, age, party affiliation or physical disabilities and provide the citizens with information about voter registration and elections.



The U.S. Election Assistance Commission (EAC) announces that January 25, 2022, has been designated as the annual National Poll Worker Recruitment Day.

This will be the second annual event.


We encourage individuals interested in working at the polls on election day to apply.

(Please note: A criminal background check will be conducted to be considered, after a short interview process).

The Filing Period has been suspended:

By order of the North Carolina Supreme Court, filing for all offices for the 2022 primary is suspended. This includes the rescheduled municipal contests and any separate filing period for those municipal contests in January.


Primary Date moved:

The March 8, 2022 primary has been moved to May 17, 2022. We received this order late yesterday (December 9th).



Candidates already filed, deemed as filed for Primary regardless of primary Date (March to May):

For candidates whose filing has already been accepted by the board, that candidate “will be deemed to have filed for the same office” in the May primary, subject to their ability to withdraw in the new filing period (once that period is established), and subject to any court rulings that would impact that candidate’s eligibility. See paragraph 2 of the order.

Until further order of the court, voters are not required to show photo ID. The law was enjoined by a federal district court on December 31, 2019. This page will be updated if new information becomes available
