Election and Voter ID Resources for UNCG Students and Community

Posted on February 13, 2024

UNCG students carry a vote sign down the street.

Seventy-four percent of UNC Greensboro students voted in the 2020 presidential election. The University is excited to see a strong sense of civic participation continue this year during the upcoming 2024 election season. 

The 2024 North Carolina primary election takes place March 5 during spring break. Those who are registered or able to register locally in Guilford County can vote at UNCG’s early voting site in the Kaplan Center starting February 15. 

UNCG encourages student engagement with the Office of Leadership and Civic Engagement (OLCE) Walk to the Polls event on Monday, February 19 from 1-3 p.m. at the Minerva Statue on the EUC lawn to kick off the primary early voting period. 

Using Spartan Card as voter ID 

The Spartan Card is an approved form of voter ID in the state. With the North Carolina primary election on March 5 and the general election on November 5, voters will be asked to show photo ID when voting. If voting in another state, please visit their Board of Election website to determine what they require. 

Important reminders: 

  • The North Carolina voter registration deadline for the March primary was February 9. Anyone who misses this deadline can still register or update voter registration at the early voting site, during the early voting period.
  • Students in North Carolina who do not know where they will go after college may register if physically present in the school community or remain registered at home. Any new registration cancels any earlier registration. Find more details here.

OLCE is offering Voting 101 workshops during election season. They will help students stay up to date with their weekly email newsletter and on their Instagram account @uncg_olce. Any questions can be emailed to lead@uncg.edu.

OLCE’s Student Democracy Fellows are student employees who assist in election events like voter registration drives. For more information about how, when, or where to vote, visit here.

These resources include a sample ballot and the ability to register to vote, check existing voter registration, or update voter registration.
