Automatically restored upon completion of sentence, probation and/or parole. For a North Carolina conviction, the agency having jurisdiction over a felon at the time he or she was unconditionally discharged is required to issue a certificate to the clerk of the General Court of Justice in the county where the felon was convicted, and that clerk shall then file the certificate with the original record at no fee. Once this is done, the felon can simply register and vote.

Beyond the foregoing, your remedy seems to be in North Carolina to see a pardon from the Governor, i.e. "Executive Clemency" and I would recommend that you do that. See here:

I've actually had lawyers around here telling me there was absolutely nothing I could do... I know my record is always going to be there, but, thanks to you, I have the NC GS in writing that exlains what can be next. I accept this answer. Thank you, sir.
Glad to help and good luck to you. Cool
