Welcome to UNCA Votes

Find everything you need here to successfully register & vote in N.C.

This website is a non-partisan resource for the UNC Asheville campus community and the voters of Buncombe County. Voter education resources and campus outreach initiatives are compiled in one place, with the goal of removing barriers to voting and increasing student participation in local, state, and national elections.

We are currently preparing for the 2024 primary election cycle here at UNCA! The NC primary election is on March 5th, and the early voting period begins on February 15th.

Also, please note that there has been an important change in NC election law: voters in North Carolina will now be required to present an approved photo ID at the polls in order to vote. The good news is that UNCA IDs for students, faculty, and staff have been approved as valid forms of ID for voting purposes! You can also access free photo ID cards from your local Board of Elections.
