Caswell County Official Website
Board of Elections

 
Our Goal 
Welcome to the official website for the Caswell County Board of Elections. Our office is committed to maintaining current and accurate voter files, maximizing voter registration and voter turnout efforts, educating the voting public, providing the best possible services and conducting efficient, fair, honest and impartial elections at a minimum cost to the electorate.

What We Do

The Caswell County Board of Elections is responsible for conducting all elections held in Caswell County and locally administering State election laws. Our principal functions include:
  • Establishing election precincts and voting sites
  • Appointing and training precinct officials
  • Preparing and distributing ballots and voting equipment
  • Canvassing and certifying the ballots cast in elections
  • Investigating any voting irregularities.

We maintain voter registration for Caswell County and provide public information on voters and elections.  A major focus of the Elections Office is to maintain accuracy and security of both voter registration information and the voting process, including ensuring that each voter’s records reflect that voter’s correct precinct and ensuring that those who choose to vote have not been deterred or denied in any way.

How We Are Organized

Each County in North Carolina has a Board of Elections. It is a three person board which is appointed every two years by the State Board of Elections.  North Carolina General Statute 163-30 states:

“The State chairman of each political party shall have the right to recommend to the State Board of Elections three registered voters in each county for appointment to the board of elections for that county. If such recommendations are received by the Board 15 or more days before the last Tuesday in June 1985, and each two years thereafter, it shall be the duty of the State Board of Elections to appoint the county boards from the names thus recommended.”

The local political parties will submit three names to the State political party chairman.  Once appointed, County Board members take an oath and begin their two year terms on the Tuesday following the third Monday in July in odd-numbered years. No more than two members of the County Board of Elections shall belong to the same political party.  The Board oversees the functions of our office and hires a Director to administer all duties.
