Party Affiliation
When you register, you will need to declare your party affiliation. You may register with any recognized party in the State of North Carolina. Party affiliation determines the Primary in which you are eligible to vote. You may also register as unaffiliated.

An Unaffiliated voter is currently allowed to vote in the Democratic or Republican Primary. The individual party has the authority to permit Unaffiliated voters to vote in its primary. On election day the Unaffiliated voter must state the political party with which he affiliates and in whose primary he wishes to vote.
