Each County in North Carolina has a Board of Elections. It is a four person board which is appointed every two years by the State Board of Elections. (Members of the State Board of Elections are appointed by the Governor.) County Board members take an oath and begin their two year terms 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 of Elections is responsible for conducting all elections held in Forsyth County. The Board administers, locally, State election laws. 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, and investigating any voting irregularities. It maintains voter registration and participation records and provides public information on voters and elections.
