Voter Registration Drives at Rochester Institute of Technology, Sept. 17 and 18


Rochester Institute of Technology is on a mission to get students involved in the upcoming national election. The RIT Student Volunteer Office is holding two voter registration drives, encouraging students (and everyone else) to register to vote on these dates:

  • 10 a.m.-2 p.m., Friday, Sept. 17, Grace Watson Hall.
  • 9 a.m.-2 p.m., Saturday, Sept. 18, Gordon Field House, during RIT ROCS community service day.

    The Student Volunteer Office has held three drives so far this school year with a total of around 300 absentee ballots and 200 new registered voters signed up.

    The Young Democrats and the Young Republicans will be on hand at the voter registration drives this week. For more information, call Phyllis Walker at 475-6056.
