Voting in the Primaries

Author name
Larry Moneta, Vice President for Student Affairs

Dear students,

Once again, Duke University will host an early voting site for the upcoming primary election in North Carolina. The polling site will be located at the Freeman Center for Jewish Life, 1415 Faber Street, and will run daily from Thursday, March 3, to Saturday, March 12. Hours will vary throughout the week and can be found on the elections board’s website. 

The site will be open to Durham County registered voters only. Durham County residents are eligible to vote at the site if they are a U.S. citizen and a legal resident of Durham County for 30 days by the date of the election. Voters must be at least 18 years old, although individuals who are 17 can register and vote if they will be 18 by the November general election.

Students who are currently NOT registered to vote in Durham County should consult the university’s voter information website before changing registration to understand the implications switching residency to North Carolina may have on future tax and tuition benefits in their current state of residence.
