How to Get Involved in the Presidential Election On-Campus

The Presidential Election is approaching quickly and gaining momentum by the day. This race is, by far, the most unique, and one of, if not the most important Presidential Elections in history, and we’re living it. Young voters are exercising their right to vote now more than ever, and it’s crucial that we do so because this race contains many issues that pertain to us directly. If you want to gather more information on the election and candidates and become more involved in it, both on a campus level and nationwide, then look no further than to one of the university political party organizations.
