NO NEW IN-PERSON APPOINTMENTS EXCEPT AUTHENTICATIONS: Due to COVID in Wake County and North Carolina, as of 12/11/2020, 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.
