Registering to Vote
If registering to vote at your on-campus address, be sure to provide the following on your voter registration application in addition to other requirements indicated on the registration form:
Even though many organizations hold registration drives on campus, the process is only completed once the Board of Elections processes the form and you receive a voter registration card in the mail. To register directly with the New Hanover County Board of Elections, you may download a registration form and mail or deliver the form in-person. You can also obtain and fill out the form at our office. Before the registration deadline (25 days prior to each election), it is a good idea to check your registration on the State Board of Elections website to make sure its current.

Students keeping their home address for voting purposes should request an absentee ballot by mail from their home county’s Board of Elections office.
New Hanover County voters may visit any Absentee One-Stop Voting site convenient to them.
