Be ready for the 2020 election.
Welcome to the Elon Votes! website. This nonpartisan resource was developed by Elon Votes!, the Elon University Political Engagement Work Group, Council on Civic Engagement, and Kernodle Center for Civic Life to help Elon students engage in our democracy by registering to vote and casting their ballots in upcoming elections.
Students Should Register to Vote and/or Request an Absentee Ballot Well in Advance of Their State’s Deadlines: When Are My State’s Deadlines?
How Can I Verify That I Am Registered To Vote?
Check your status on the National Association of Secretaries of State website well in advance of your state’s voter registration deadline. Many states also allow you to view your ballot prior to voting. This provides an opportunity to research all of the candidates on your ballot so that you can make informed decisions.
Launched in 2014, Elon Votes! is a nonpartisan campus initiative created to provide students with the necessary resources to register to vote and cast their ballots in upcoming elections. This initiative is housed in the Kernodle Center for Civic Life and is managed by student Elon Votes! Coordinators and Andrew Goodman Foundation Ambassadors Andrea Sheetz and Trevor Molin.
