Cleveland County GOP

Register or Change Registration


It’s easy to register to vote- but impossible to vote without registering.

You can register at the Cleveland County Board of Elections, located at 215 Patton Drive in Shelby (704-484-4858), at any of the county’s libraries, at any of these locations, or by downloading the form on this page and mailing to the Board of Elections.

The deadline to register to vote in North Carolina is 25 days before the day of the election. Forms that are received by the county board of elections office or postmarked by the deadline are accepted as valid applications for the upcoming election. Also, agency and DMV voter registration transactions that are completed by the deadline are accepted as valid for the upcoming election. Applicants will be notified by the county board of elections of their precinct and polling place assignments.

Individuals who miss the registration deadline, if qualified, may register in person and then vote at a one-stop voting site in the person’s county of residence during the one-stop absentee voting period, which begins the third Thursday before an election and goes through the last Saturday before an election.
