Message from the Chancellor: Early Voting for 2020 Primary Election Ends Tomorrow, Feb. 29; Statewide 2020 Primary Election is Tuesday, March 3
Feb. 28, 2020
Dear NCCU Community:
Early voting for the 2020 Primary Election ends tomorrow, Feb. 29, 2020. The statewide Primary Election is Tuesday, March 3. (Please consult the Durham Board of Elections, Wake County Board of Elections or the Board of Elections in your home county for detailed race information.)
Yesterday, I was extremely pleased to hear that many NCCU students participated in the "March to the Polls" event to celebrate the early-voting opportunity at the campus precinct in the Albert Turner School of Law Building (640 Nelson Street).
I strongly encourage all students, faculty and staff to obtain information about the candidates and their platforms and exercise your right to vote. I especially encourage all students who are registered to vote and make sure your voice is heard.
NCCU students who live on campus and are U.S. citizens age 18 and older (or who will be 18 by March 3) are eligible to vote at the campus precinct. Faculty and staff who reside in Durham County are also eligible to vote at our campus polling location. The One-Stop Early Voting period allows you to register and vote on the same day.
The polling precinct in the School of Law will be open Saturday, Feb. 29, for the last day of early voting, from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m.
As a reminder to employees, please carefully review the university’s Political Activities Policy at https://legacy.nccu.edu/policies/retrieve.cfm?id=447.
The precinct at NCCU will be open from 6:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. for the Primary Election on March 3; however, you must be already registered with this precinct to vote here on Election Day. All polling locations in Durham and Wake counties will be open from 6:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. on March 3.
Please remember “Your Vote is Your Voice.”
In Truth and Service,
Dr. Johnson O. Akinleye
