Last week was National Voter Registration Day, and at Students United we care about getting our eligible student voters registered! So much so that a 2019-2020 organizational objective of the organization is Student Voter Registration. More specifically, “Students United is committed to making a comprehensive plan to register students to vote.”
So what did we do on National Voter Registration Day?
Our campus staff took initiative and got in front of students to help register their peers to vote! Many of the campuses tabled on campus, while some student staff went to classrooms and talked with students about the importance of registering to vote.
