State Of State To Host ‘Why Vote?’ Panel Discussion

State of State will host a panel discussion entitled “Why Vote?” at 8 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 2 in 8 Henderson Building. The panel will feature members of the McCourtney Institute of Democracy and The Penn State Speech and Debate Society. Students are invited to attend to learn more about their role in the upcoming election.

“It is one power to have a right to vote, but it is another power to have an informed vote,” State of State said in the event description. The panel plans to discuss topics like the role of the millennial generation, local government and civic duty, how debate improves political discourse on campus, and politics in the media.

State of State is a student organization that aims to create an open dialogue about issues important to Penn Staters. In addition to events like this hosted throughout the year, State of State hosts an annual conference in the spring featuring keynote speakers from around the university in a TED-type style to discuss these issues and other topics important to students and faculty.
