Voter Registration

Voter Registration

Under the National Voter Registration Act of 1993, schools receiving federal financial aid (Title IV funds) are required to disseminate information on how students can register to vote. Since the state of North Carolina require registration prior to Election Day and does not allow the ability to register at the time of voting, then Mayland Community College must make a good faith effort to distribute registrations forms to students.

The following links will take you to the general information about how to register to vote in North Carolina and the North Carolina voter registration form.

Note: Beginning in 2016, North Carolina will require voters to show a photo identification (photo ID) when they present to vote in person. This change is a result of the Voter Information Verification Act (State Law 2013-381). For more information on the types of photo IDs accepted, visit Vote NC.

Furthermore, in order to be eligible to vote in a North Carolina election, the registration form must be postmarked at least 25 days before the election, or hand delivered, or faxed to local board of elections office no later than 5:00 P.M. on the 25th day before the election. If faxed, the original must be received no later than 20 days before the election.
