This message was emailed to the campus community recently:
We are pleased to announce that both early and election-day voting will be available on our campus this year.
There will be two UNCG-related sites open for early voting from Thursday, October 27, through Saturday, November 5:
- Kaplan Wellness Center (Room 209), 1301 Gate City Boulevard, Greensboro, NC, 27403
- Gateway University Research Park, North Campus, 5900 Summit Ave., Browns Summit, NC, 27214
Weekday (M-F) hours for both sites are 8:00 am – 6:30 pm. Weekend times vary; please consult the complete listing of early voting sites and hours for more information. Please note: Though the Kaplan Center will be open earlier than usual for voting purposes on Saturdays, access to the fitness facilities will operate according to the regularly scheduled hours.
An election day polling site will be open on Tuesday, November 8, 2016 from 6:30 a.m. until 7:30 p.m. in the Campus Ministries Building, located at the corner of Stirling and Walker Streets. Please refer to the State Board of Elections website for official information regarding your individual registration status and election day polling location.
Transportation: Due to very limited parking at both locations, we strongly encourage the use of alternate transportation including walking, biking or riding the Spartan Chariot; options are described in the “Getting Around Campus” section of the Parking Operations & Campus Access Management website.
Students: Additional voting information specific to students can be found at the UNCG VOTES website.
Employees: In accordance with UNC Policy 300.5.1, N.C. General Statute Section 126-13, and the Office of State Human Resources’ Policy on Community Service Leave, individual voting and election staffing is not covered activity under community service guidelines. Except for the one defined activity outlined in Section 5, Page 17 of the State Human Resources Manual (provision of unpaid assistance to voters inside a polling place), staff who choose to participate in the election process during their normal work schedule are required to take annual leave. Those employees who are required to staff the event as part of their official responsibilities (e.g., Kaplan facilities staff) should record their time as time worked. Staff are urged to check with their supervisors if they have any questions.
