Welcome to the NHC Board of Elections

The mission of the New Hanover County Board of Elections is to provide the highest level of professional standards to ensure accurate, honest, and fair elections through accountability and integrity and to provide all citizens our services in the most efficient, effective, and timely manner.

Accessing the Board of Elections Office 
Work is underway for New Hanover County’s redevelopment of the Government Center site, located at 230 Government Center Drive in Wilmington, NC. Visitors who need to access services at the Government Center can continue to do so by parking in the South entrance lot off of Government Center Drive and entering through the South entrance doors.
To specifically access the Board of Elections Office, visitors should proceed through the Atrium and exit the building on the West Side, turning left on the sidewalk once outside. There will be signage placed on the sidewalk outside of our office. 
More information about the Government Center Renovation can be found here
