Does the party I’m registered with have anything to do with the number of N.C. electoral votes? What is the deadline to change my party affiliation?

Cammie Bellamy

A state’s electoral votes are allotted based on its number of U.S. Senators (2 for each state) and U.S. Representatives (13 for North Carolina).

The only time political parties come into the process is when choosing the electors who vote in the Electoral College for president. For instance, the North Carolina Republican Party’s 15 chosen electors were able to vote in the Electoral College after the November 2016 election because Republican candidate Donald J. Trump won the state’s popular vote.

The deadline to change your party affiliation in North Carolina is 25 days before an election.
