 Why Your Vote is Safe in North Carolina

Your vote is especially safe in this election due to new measures Jackson County Board of Elections and the North Carolina State Board of Elections have instigated.  When you vote you will receive a paper ballot (from a volunteer) that will record your vote along with the electronic record and a paper tape.  You will review the paper ballot before it is put into a locked box that will only be opened in case of a recount. Read the article “Why Your Vote is Safe in North Carolina” on our website.  If you have any questions, contact Jackson County Board of Elections.
