State attorney general, secretary of state invite students to voter engagement townhall
Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson and Attorney General Dana Nessel will host a virtual Get Out the Vote Rally for Michigan college students on Tuesday, Oct. 20, at 5 p.m.
Benson and Nessel will remind students of the key deadlines and voting rights information they need to know to make their plan to vote.
The event is co-sponsored by the Michigan Association of State Universities, Michigan Independent Colleges and Universities, Campus Vote Project, the ALL IN Challenge, the Big 10 Voting Challenge, Campus Election Engagement Project, and PIRGIM Students.
“In a year where we’re expecting record-breaking turnout, we’re working hard to ensure our students and young people have the tools and information they need to vote, many for the first time,” said Benson. “This is going to be an historic election, and we want every voter, especially new ones, to feel confident in the process and in exercising their rights.”
