Do I need to update my registration if I've moved since I registered?
If you have moved from East to West campus, you will need to update your registration, as will people who have moved into off-campus housing.
Could registering to vote in North Carolina impact my ability to claim residency in your home state for graduate school and/or impact tuition and tax benefits?
Yes, registering to vote in North Carolina may impact your ability to claim residency in your home state for graduate school and could impact tuition and tax benefits for you and/or your family. Please check with your state board of elections about any concerns.
What is my on-campus residential address?
  • If you live on East Campus, write 1 Duke University East Campus on Line 1 (Durham, NC 27708).
  • If you live on West Campus, write 1 Duke University West Campus on Line 1 (Durham, NC 27708).
  • If you live off campus (for example, at 300 Swift Avenue), write your street address.

If you wish to vote in Durham County and have moved since previously registering (for example, from East Campus to West Campus, West to East, on-campus to off, or off-campus to on), you will need to update your registration. You do not need to update your registration if you move dorms but stay on the same campus.

What is my on-campus mailing address?
  • If you live on East or West Campus, enter: [Your P.O. Box number] on Line 1, Duke University on Line 2, and Durham, NC 27708 on Line 3.
  • If you live off campus, write your street address.
I’m not living in North Carolina this fall. Can I still vote there?
You can register and vote in your home state. Your voting status in North Carolina is less clear. You can vote in North Carolina if you can prove “an intent to return” to the state. But it is unclear whether you can meet that standard if you do not have a current campus or off-campus North Carolina address.
