LSJ Non-Partisan Voter Registration Workshop

College aged students are the youngest members of our democracy, but historically vote at lower rates.  Young people cite many barriers and lack of information is one of many of them.  This year's election is one of the most important elections for young voters as the outcome of it will shape legislation for decades to come. You all have the power to shape this so that your future will not be met with more barriers. Join the LSJ Department with a guest speaker from Common Power Future as we share in a non-partisan discussion the importance of keeping your voter registration up to date, how to get an absentee ballot, how to track your absentee ballot, and other voter registration issues you may be facing that we can assist with so you will be able to cast your vote this November. If you have any questions at all regarding your vote, please join this workshop!

SJ's Non-Partisan Voter Registration Workshop is tomorrow at 5:00 pm... Read more
