USE ONLINE SERVICES
Most of the services with the Secretary of State are available to complete online. We are open by appointment only, but we do have a limited number because of the small lobby space. Open appointments may be 30 days out. If you can complete your services online or by mail, we encourage you to do so. To complete your services online, click on the Online Service menu above. If you cannot complete your services online, you can make an appointment below. Make An Appointment
We are open by appointment only to allow for social distancing. Only a limited number of appointments will be accepted each business day. The building will remain closed to the public who do not have an appointment.

Don’t Fall for Impostors posing as the NC Department of the Secretary of State. The NC Secretary of State’s Office has received a report of individuals misrepresenting themselves as the North Carolina Department of the Secretary of State to lure loan-seekers to pay an up-front fee. Neither the Secretary of State’s Office nor any other agency will require individuals to pay taxes on a loan before the loan money can be released. Please report anyone making such offers to the NC Attorney General’s Office (https://www.ncdoj.gov/consumer.aspx) at 1-877-5-NO-SCAM.
