The Southeastern, Ieysha Sanders:
Who will bring change? According to the Campus Vote Project, 31 percent of young adults ages 18-29 turned out at the midterm elections in 2018. The National Center for Education Statistics reports that there are 19.7 million college students in the United States today. If we could increase turnout to 50 or 75 percent, between 3.7 and 8.7 million voters would be added to the narrative, and change would quickly follow.
The Southeastern Oklahoma State University Student Government Association will have a voting registration table set up in the Student Union on Thursday, Sept. 17 from noon to 2 p.m.
They will be handing out voter goody bags and registration paperwork that can be filled out and either dropped off with Student Life, or mailed out to the proper election board. Oklahoma voting registration information can be found online at https://www.ok.gov/elections/Voter_Info/Register_to_Vote/.
