7 months, 2 weeks ago
A Quincy University grassroots organization will take its voter registration campaign into the community tomorrow
Quincy University students have formed a grassroots organization, QU VOICE (for “Vote, Organize, Inform, Communicate, and Educate”) to increase voter awareness in the Quincy community. The group will promote the importance of being a registered voter, provide voter information, and encourage participation in the election process. To date, the group has registered 61 QU students for the upcoming election.
“Voting is a right in the U.S., but not everywhere in the world,” said Claire Faletti, QU VOICE member. “As a nation, we are incredibly lucky to each have this opportunity. We have fought for this fundamental right, and to not exercise it is a disservice to both ourselves and our past countrymen and women.”
QU VOICE will take its voter registration campaign into the community this Saturday, September 29, from 11:00 A.M. until 2:00 P.M. The group will hand out information and register voters at the Quincy Public Library (526 Jersey Street), Redmon and Lee Community Center (815 Elm Street) and the Quincy Mall (in front of Kirlin’s Hallmark).
If you are not registered to vote, stop by one of these area locations and a member of QU VOICE will assist you in getting your voice heard this upcoming election.
