Are U Registered?

submitted by Kay_Yow on Saturday, September 6 at 10:13 AM

Have you registered to vote yet? If not, you've only got until the end of the week (Sept. 12) to be registered in time for the October 7 elections. I know what you thinking...

Q: Can I register?
A: If you're a U.S. citizen and are 18 years old, you're golden. Register to vote.

Q: But I'm not from around here...
A: That's cool, as long as you've been a resident of Wake County for 30 days, you can register here.

Q: But what if I'm registered back home?
A: Just for convenience sake, you might want to cancel your registration at home by registering in Wake County. You live here, you work here, you go to school here, why not vote here?

Q: Where can I sign up?
A: You can download the form directly from the Wake County Board of Elections' website. Or, if you want that personal touch, pick up the form at your local public library or at registration tables located throughout campus.

See you at the polls!

Nah, Jn13Y, once you register to vote and you've received your voter registration card in the mail, you're all set to vote. No need to re-register or anything like that.

However, note if that you change addresses, you'll need to fill out the back of the form that came along with your voter registration card in order to change the address. Additionally, you can follow the same procedure to change political parties or your own name.

Be sure to note that if you're changing your registration from another NC location to here in Wake County, you'll need to fill out the "Previous Registration Cancellation" portion of the registration form before you go on to filling out your current domicile information (in Part C). If you're from another state or completely new to registration, just fill out Part C.

BDubLS1, you can mail the form to Wake Co. Board of Elections, 339 S. Salisbury St., or even better, just fuck the form and register to vote at the DMV. It's fast, easy and immediate, and since there's a DMV location in NCSU's backyard, now, not registering to vote is almost inexcusable.

Hope that settles things Best of luck to you all, and feel free to post any more questions.

Damn wonder why everyone is pushing us to vote all the sudden this year is it because they think we are stupid and easy votes. Of course not all politicians are nice people who are only out for the good of the people not themselves. They certainly wouldn't be trying to bank on the fact that they are NCSU students themselves...

^ what are you talking about? There have been voter drives every year here since I was a freshman. And mainly you have SG and other student orgs pushing this not outsiders, solely b/c the outside community DOES think little of us.

I'm not really trying to push anyone to vote for any one candidate or another (though I have my preferences), but I just think that voting is important. Ol' school TWWers know that me posting a reminder to register is a Wolf Web tradition. I'm not a part of any student organization or campaign (I don't even live in the NCSU district)...I just think it's important to vote.

So, yeah...register.

Look at it this way - you spend all of your MONEY here. But still get no representation for it...

I'll push a candidate - Zack Medford. Not because of his views or anything (no offense zack), but he's a student that can put our voice out there. And that's a hell of a lot more than we have right now - the nuisance ordinace. How sweet would it be for a student to oust the original drafter of the ordinance?

Kay thats fine if you remind every year bout registration (and come to think of it I have seen you do it before sorry). Yes i also think it is fine to be voting if you are a student but no, I am a junior and there have never been the pushes for voting registration like you are seeing now. I am not alone in this observation, also they only will offer info on one canidate at these registration areas so yes there is an agenda behind this sudden "interest". Also please remember Right wing Left wing whatever they will all just fuck you over for a buck or some power. thanks for the rant space

I think that the only other time that we got a bigger push for voter registration was from the March on the Capitol some years ago. I wanted to include in my description a place on-campus for students to go to pick up registration forms, but I wasn't sure if the library or the SG office are keeping up with them this year, so I put the registration tables down as a source.

Admittedly, they are partisan, but it's not my intent to get to anyone to vote for Zack Medford (actually I've been pretty discouraging of that)...only to get them register and, hopefully, voting on October 7th.

I definitely understand your frustration, though.
