STUDENT VOTER REGISTRATION Policy Code: 3640/5130
The board is committed to securing the future of democracy by preparing young people to be educated, engaged voters. Further, the board is committed to working in collaboration with the local board of elections to encourage students to register to vote as permitted by North Carolina law.
In keeping with this commitment, the board directs the superintendent to establish a committee of high school social studies teachers and other appropriate school personnel to collaborate with the local board of elections to facilitate and encourage voter registration at all high schools in the school system.
In compliance with G.S. 163-82.23, the principal of each high school shall make available to all students and others who are eligible to register to vote the application forms described in G.S. 163-82.3.
