ASC Promotes Rock the Vote on Campus

October 17, 2012

On Sept. 26 and 28, as well as Oct. 1 and 3, the Associated Student Community staffed a Rock the Vote voter registration table during lunch in the Bruin’s Den to help students register to vote.

ASC and Rock the Vote are partnering on the George Fox campus to help students get involved with the presidential election.

“This means [that] we have acquired the right to use their logo and other resources to promote voter registration. Rock The Vote asks that we write up a small summary once our drive is over about the experience,” said ASC Vice President Jessica Stanton.

Stanton added, “I think it is super important for students to register to vote. We, as the ASC, have tried to make it as simple as possible. We are covering the costs for postage for students who are filling out Oregon Registration Cards on campus and students who are not native to Oregon can register online to their state, print out the card, and mail it.”

According to their Web site, Rock the Vote is a national organization dedicated to “building the political power of young people by engaging them in the electoral process, urging politicians to pay attention to issues that matter to young voters, and protecting their fundamental right to vote.” Rock the Vote is on a mission to encourage young adults to be a part of the electoral process.
