Winona State University’s and American Democracy Project hosted multiple events to celebrate National Voter Registration Day Sept. 27, with more than 70 faculty, staff and students volunteering to register voters at 10 locations on main campus.
Participants had the opportunity to register to vote and ask any questions about regarding voter registration, information and access.
The American Democracy Project has participated in National Voter Registration Day since 2013 and has a goal to register 1,000 voters this year.
ADP will continue its educational outreach until the election Tuesday, Nov. 8, with weekly Popcorn and Politics sessions from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Fridays in the Minne Lobby. Voter registration materials and other information will be available.
“AASCU’s American Democracy Project and Winona State University encourage our students to be civically engaged and to develop the skills to be invested citizens in the communities where they live,” said Kara Lindaman, head of WSU’s American Democracy Project”. Voting is often the first step towards sustained political and civic engagement, and we are committed to becoming a ‘”voter friendly designated campus'” in 2017-18 through the Campus Vote Project in our participation in National Voter Registration Day and GOTV activities through Election Day.
