To celebrate National Voter Registration Day, Roberto Aragon, the coordinator of student involvement, organized voter registration booths on the Summerville and Health Sciences campuses. 

“We have to make students know how important it is to be engaged, not just this year but every year,” said Dr. Patrice Jackson. 

At the booths, Georgia residents are able to register to vote and also get absentee ballots. If the student is not from Georgia, the volunteers at the booths have information on how to apply for absentee ballots.  

Students who register can grab a free t-shirt at the booth.  

“It’s our duty as citizens to vote,” said Dr. Jackson.
