Current Executive Orders can be found at the Governor's website.

Executive Orders (2001-2016) are available at the Modern Governors Papers section of the North Carolina Digital Collections website.

Since 1973, Executive Orders have been published as an appendix to the printed Session Laws of North Carolina.
