SRU STUDENTS TO HOLD VOTER REGISTRATION RALLY THURSDAY

             SLIPPERY ROCK, Pa. – A “Student Voter Registration Drive Kick-Off Rally” will be held at Slippery Rock University from noon to 1 p.m. Thursday [Sept. 2] in an effort to promote the national “Your Vote, Your Voice” campaign from the National Campus Voter Registration Project.

          The registration project, to be held outside Rocky’s Grille in the University Union, is part of the National Association of Independent Colleges and Universities. Voter registration information will be available in campus cafeterias throughout September.

          Sponsors of the campus program include the SRU Student Government Association, Young Democrats, College Republicans, University Program Board, Student Union for Minority Affairs and the Association of Residence Hall Students.

           The 26th amendment to the U.S. Constitution, ratified in 1971, granted 18 year olds the right to vote. In 1998, Congress mandated all college and universities make a good-faith effort to distribute voter registration forms on campus.

          Those needing additional information should contact Dr. Paula Olivero, interim assistant vice president for student development, or Dr. Itzi Meztli, assistant professor of English.
