More than 5,000 voter registration cards are being distributed to campus organizations at Texas State in order to maintain the university’s ongoing political activism. The hope is to register as many citizens as possible before the Oct. 5 deadline.
The College Democrats have already registered citizens across the county and will receive an additional 1,000 cards. The College Republicans will also be given 1,,000 cards. The remaining 3,000 cards will be administered by Associated Student Governement (ASG) as part of its plan to register 5,000 citizens this fall.
While Monday is the last day to register for the November 2009 election, voter registration will continue throughout the school year. As the university graduates students each year and gains them from incoming classes, ASG tries to register the new voters as soon as possible.
If a student is registered but has moved, the cards need to be updated. If the student is registered in her home town, the information needs to be changed so she can vote in local elections.Email | Print
