Voter Registration

Those seeking to register to vote in the November 4, 2014 General Election should deliver or have their voter registration form postmarked to the Guilford County Board of Elections office by October 10 at 5pm. North Carolina allows college students to register to vote and vote using their college or university address. You may pick up a voter registration form at Jackson Library or register in-person at the Guilford County Board of Elections office (301 W. Market Street, Greensboro), Monday through Friday from 8am-5pm.

Political Activities on Campus

UNCG values freedom of speech and participation in the political process as fundamental rights guaranteed by the U. S. Constitution and actively encourages members of the University community to be engaged citizens. As a reminder, students, faculty and staff may not use University resources – email accounts, computers, vehicles, equipment, supplies, funds, postage, photocopying, faxes and the like – for political campaign activities. For more information, please see the UNC Policy Manual (Policy 300.5.1) and the UNC General Administration Guidelines Concerning Use of UNC Resources for Political Campaign Activities.

Any additional questions or clarification regarding voter registration, early voting, or updates to existing election law should be addressed to the Guilford County Board of Elections.
