Register to Vote!

Please be sure to forward the list below which outlines next steps:

 

  1. REGISTER TO VOTE AT COLLEGE
  • Register to Vote by October 14
  • Register to Vote after October 20 –  available only at Early Voting Sites.

It’s called “One Stop” Early Voting / Same Day Voter Registration and begins October 20 and ends November 5. You will register and vote all at the same time during Early voting. You will need to bring proof of residence – a document showing your name & street address. The location on the document will prove that you live at the address you will use as your place of residence on your registration form.

If you’re living off campus: use a bank statement, pay check, utility bill, or copy of lease.

If you’re living on campus: you’ll receive an official email from school showing your name, room number & dorm name. Print it out and take with you when you go to vote.

 

  1. CHECK YOUR NAME 

 

You will receive your Voter Registration Card in 2-3 weeks. If you don’t receive your Voter Registration card:

  • Call & ask if you’re registered at the Board of Elections (336) 641-3836.
  • Check on-line (with your phone or computer) Type in Board of Elections Guilford County, scroll down to voter information lookup, type in first and last name — that is all you need — and click “search” to access a file with your name. Click on your name to see a profile of your voter registration information. Scroll down the page and you’ll see your election day polling location. If your name doesn’t appear, GO Vote Early and Register then.
