Let Your Voice Be Heard and Vote!


Early voting for municipal elections is currently underway in Durham and Wake counties.

The primary election to choose candidates for mayoral and council seats in the City of Durham is scheduled for Tuesday, Oct. 10, the same day as the general election in the City of Raleigh. The general election for the City of Durham – as well as several other municipalities in the region – will take place on Tuesday, Nov. 7.

Students may cast ballots during the early-voting period at NCCU’s polling site on campus if they are U.S. citizens and at least 18 years of age (or will be 18 by Nov. 7) and reside on-campus or elsewhere in the City of Durham. Faculty and staff members eligible to vote in the City of Durham also may cast ballots on campus during the early-voting period that runs Sept. 21 through Oct. 7 at 1 p.m. One-Stop Early Voting allows voters to register and cast ballots on the same day.

The NCCU campus polling site is in the Albert Turner Law Building, 640 Nelson Street. Voters may cast their ballots during the following hours:

·        Monday to Friday: 9 a.m. – 6 p.m.

·        Saturday: 9 a.m. –1 p.m.

·        Sunday: 12 p.m. – 4 p.m.


The polling site also will be open for the City of Durham General Election on Tuesday, Nov. 7, from 6:30 a.m. until 7:30 p.m., however, voters must already be registered in the local precinct, No. 55-49, to vote here on Election Day.

Faculty and staff: Please reference the university’s Political Activities Policy here: http://www.nccu.edu/policies/retrieve.cfm?id=447.

Members of the university community are encouraged to vote on campus, if eligible, to demonstrate the need for the early-voting site. Last year, students, faculty and staff participated in Eagles Soar to the Polls, an event to kick off the early-voting period. 

To learn about additional early-voting options or other election details, please consult the Durham Board of ElectionsWake County Board of Elections or officials in your county.
