Your time is running out. If you’re going to vote in Pennsylvania for this year’s presidential election, you have less than 48 hours to register. You have less than two more days to ensure your voice is going to be heard loud and clear in November. You have less than two days to make sure your ballot will reflect your values and your visions. So, don’t let the time pass you by and run out.
This is your world, your country and your voice.
The deadline to register to vote, Oct. 9, is no reason to be turned away from the polls in November — and it’s certainly not a reason to not have an opinion on what direction you want our country to head in. We are a school of more than 40,000 students and our voice, whether we believe it or not, means something. We have the power to change the world. We have the power to push our country to progress.
There have been people who are tirelessly and unrelentingly standing on the streets of our campus, asking each and every one of us if we’ve registered to vote.
Do not let their hard work go to waste — and it will if we don’t perform our civic duty, register and vote. The deadline is Oct. 9 for Pennsylvania.
This is your last chance. You may say the line “I don’t like politics” or you might say “I don’t know anything about the issues.” Well, that’s not an excuse. We have an abundance of information at our fingertips, from daily newspapers to television stations to other Internet resources. We are in the age of Google. You can get informed with the click of a button, so why don’t you? Don’t use any of those reasons as an excuse.
Be proactive and allow yourself to partake in one of our nation’s greatest traditions.
It’s time to to get out there. PSU Votes, a nonpartisan Penn State initiative, celebrates Voter Registration Day today in the HUB-Robeson Center from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. — take a walk by.
Most students pass through the HUB every single day, several times a day. If you’ve been telling yourself that you’d get around to registering, then here’s your chance and it couldn’t be easier.
This event is going to include dance companies, musical groups and Penn State student-athletes in an effort to encourage students to register to vote.
This election is just as important as any past election.
And, it will be the first opportunity many of us have ever had to vote in a presidential race. It’s something to be proud of and it’s something to be a part of.
We have no excuses. Penn State students and officials have been actively present on campus, encouraging and helping students to vote. Let your voice to be heard — register today.
