NO NEW IN-PERSON APPOINTMENTS EXCEPT AUTHENTICATIONS: Due to COVID in Wake County and North Carolina, the Secretary of State’s Office is not accepting any new in-person appointments EXCEPT FOR APOSTILLES and OTHER AUTHENTICATIONS which require original documents.
Most filings and transactions can be completed online or by mail, and we encourage you to use these methods at this time. In many cases, transactions can be completed online or by mail more expeditiously than when an appointment becomes available. Our call center can also be helpful at 919-814-5400.
Thank you for your patience as we continue to consider the health and safety of our customers, staff, and the general public.

NEW! As of February 17, 2022, all new Advance Health Care Directive Registry cards issued by the Secretary of State’s Office will allow access to a registrant’s document in two ways. First, the document may be accessed by pointing your smart phone camera at the QR code printed on the registration card. OR, you can do it the old way by entering the file number and password found on the printed registration card in the boxes above. Anyone with access to the card, including your trusted health care agents/POAs and health officials, can scan the code, too. This will make it much easier to access the document on file with our office when needed. Don't have a QR code but want one? Click here to learn how.
