Why I Vote

November 3, 2020, is rapidly approaching and Staff Council wants you to be prepared to exercise your right to vote during the 2020 Elections.

Record voter turnout is expected this November and all are encouraged to take advantage of early voting if possible. From October 13-30, 2020, you can cast your ballot before the November 3, 2020 Election Day rush.

Motivate other Coogs to vote by sharing the reason you vote. Staff Council will be featuring #WhyIVote videos here and posting them to social media.
