Statutory Authority Secretary of State
Like other State agencies, our work has to be accomplished according to State laws and rules, as well as federal laws and rules. You can find most of the laws establishing the duties of the Secretary of State on this page.
The links to our laws on this page take you to the website of the North Carolina General Assembly. Recent changes to the laws may not be included yet. The General Assembly is not the official publisher of the North Carolina General Statutes. The official publisher of the General Statutes is LexisNexis. Please review the General Assembly explanation.
