The Craven County Board of Elections operates under a five member board that is appointed every two years. The board is two Democrats, two Republicans, and a Chair that is appointed by the Governor, effective January 31 (Session Law 2018-146).
The Craven County Board of Elections has 3 full-time employees.The County Board of Elections is State-governed and County-funded. The Office is responsible for all voter registration and elections in Craven County. The right to vote is the cornerstone of American freedom. Your vote counts. Voters should feel that the process is just and be allowed to express their viewpoints through their ballots.
Meetings are held in the Board of Elections One-Stop/Training Room in the Craven County Government Administration building located at 406 Craven Street in New Bern. Due to recent legislation and court cases, we do not have a current appointed board and therefore can not meet or conduct business. The next board meeting, as well as subsequent 2019 meeting dates, are to be determined.
