UNCP Votes is a student managed and student ran nonpartisan election engagement campaign hosted by the Office for Community & Civic Engagement. The campaign serves as an umbrella for all democratic engagement on campus and encourages partnerships with UNCP departments, student organizations, and other non-partisan groups. #UNCPVOTES
This campaign is designed to engage members of the UNCP community to become:
- active and registered voters;
- more educated on the importance of voting; and
- knowledgeable on where and how to vote.

UNC Pembroke, is one of 123 campuses in 31 states designated as a “Voter-Friendly Campus.” The initiative, led by national nonpartisan organizations Campus Vote Project (CVP) and NASPA – Student Affairs Administrators in Higher Education, held participating institutions accountable for planning and implementing practices that encourage their students to register and vote in the election and in the coming years.
The mission of the Voter Friendly Campus designation is to bolster efforts that help students overcome barriers to participating in the political process. Our campus was evaluated based on a campus plan about how we would engage student voters, how we facilitated voter engagement efforts on our campus, and a final analysis of our efforts.
