Early Voting

Due in part to a record-breaking turnout on Duke’s campus in 2018, the Durham County Board of Elections has once again granted Duke an early-voting site on campus, this time for the 2020 primaries. Same-day voter registration and early voting will take place in Brodhead 068 from February 13 thru February 29 during the following times:

• Monday-Friday -- 8:00 AM - 7:30 PM
• Saturdays (Feb. 15 and Feb. 22) -- 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM
• Saturday (Feb. 29) -- 8:00 AM - 3:00 PM
• Sundays -- 12:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Get Involved

If you want to help register students to vote, create how-to videos for filling out registration forms, plan Duke Votes events, or collaborate in other ways, e-mail polis@duke.edu, and we'll plug you into the campus-wide Duke Votes operation.

N.C. Voter Photo ID Card

IMPORTANT NEWS: Voters will not be required to show photo ID for the 2020 primary election on March 3, 2020.

This is the result of a December 31, 2019 federal district court decision that blocked North Carolina’s voter photo ID requirement from taking effect.

The injunction will remain in place until further order of the court. For more information visit the State Board of Elections website.

We will continue to monitor the status of voter ID requirements in North Carolina and will update this page accordingly.

Duke Votes Ambassadors

This year we're instituting a new program designed to give students additional resources all across the campus. More than 20 Duke staff members have volunteered to participate in the "Duke Votes Ambassadors" program. If you're having trouble finding an answer you're looking for, they're available to help direct you to the right place. If you need to mail a voter registration or absentee ballot, swing by one of their desks for a stamped envelope.

If you'd like to reach out to a Duke Votes Ambassador near you, their office location and contact information can be found on this interactive map.

Congratulations on a historic turnout in 2018!
