Students didn’t forget to register to vote for the upcoming midterm elections this week as they passed by registration tables in Hillwood Commons. Tuesday Sept. 25, 2018 was national voter registration day. During common hour, The League of Women Voters, a non-partisan organization encouraging women to get engaged in the political process, set up a registration table to encourage students to register to vote.
Chana Hancox, a sophomore double major in business management and psychology, helped hand out student voter registration forms.
“Voting is what makes a change in the most simplistic way,” she said. “To have your voice be a part of something bigger not only makes a difference societally, but also for ones grounding.”
The 2018 midterm elections are Tuesday, Nov. 6. The deadline to register to vote in New York is Friday, Oct. 12. To register, change your political party or request an absentee ballot, students can visit the local DMV or online by creating an account at my.dmv.ny.gov.
