North Country Community College strives to inform students and employees of voter registration procedures and to provide students with voter registration information and forms. It is important for college students to register to vote because many of the issues that impact students, such as education, war, and employment, are directly impacted by elected officials.

By making this pledge, you promise to vote on Election Day.
Studies show that you’re more likely to complete an action if you’ve already made a public commitment to it. That’s why we built this pledge — as a way for you (and your friends and family!) to maintain accountability when it comes to voting.
Not only does voting help your community, but pledging to vote helps your school, too.
