Promote to Vote
By: Breyana Laury
It is important for voter turnout that local and state voting policies and procedures are public knowledge. Often, voters do not know where, when and how to vote. Public awareness campaigns can encourage voter participation. That is why Monday November 7, 2016 various members of Hilbert College’s Black Student Union sat at a table in front of Bogel 101 from 12:30-3:30pm promoting people to vote in the 2016 Presidential Election. We not only wanted to give people of the Hilbert College community additional information on the 2016 candidates Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, but we also wanted to get people active in the process and hopefully lead to more informed voting in the future. If you were able to stop at the table BSU members were giving out I’m with her posters and Trump stickers along with candy. The BSU members appreciate everyone who participated as well as voted in the 2016 Presidential election and hope to see everyone at our next event.
