Why Are You Voting, Penn State?
We’re always being fed reasons to vote — from the talking heads of political parties to Jack Johnson concerts that are designed to make civic duty seem cool. But every single one of us have our personal reasons for getting out to the polls this November 6th.
So let’s hear them, Penn State?
PSU Votes, Onward State, Alpha Phi Alpha and Alpha Kappa Alpha are joining forces to give a forum for PSU students to voice their opinions on what issues are giving them political steam this election.
From 12 p.m. to 2 p.m. this Wednesday, the groups will be set up outside of the HUB, the Pattee Paterno library and East Halls with white boards and dry-erase markers to engage students with the simple question; “why are you voting?” The answers will be photographed and cataloged on the PSU Votes and Onward State Facebook pages.
And if you’ve yet to register to vote, there will be available voter registration forms at each location.
Then that night; Jay Paterno, Coquese Washington and John Gastil will be hosting “What’s at Stake?” — an impartial forum to address the importance of having your voice heard in the up-coming election. The event will take place at 8 p.m. in Heritage Hall.
Join @OnwardState and @PSUvotes in making this election year historic for Penn State.
