Drexel Votes 2012
Drexel Votes 2012 is a broad-based coalition of student organizations, schools, colleges and administrative offices committed to encouraging Drexel undergraduates to become registered voters, educated and engaged citizens, and active supporters of the candidate of their choice. Inspired by the University’s commitment to student engagement, the coalition is chaired by the Center of Interdisciplinary Inquiry and includes subcommittees from the Lindy Center for Civic Engagement, Government and Community Relations, Student Life, Westphal College of Media Arts and Design, History and Politicis, Vision 2020, Hagerty Library and student groups. The coalition is focused on increasing the number of students who participate in the electoral process. Drexel Votes 2012 has planned more than a dozen activities to make this happen, including on-campus registration stations and a broadcast email reminder to all students before the October 6 Presidential Election registration deadline, with links to frequently asked questions and online registration forms. They have created a Web site with extensive information about registration and voting at www.drexel.edu/drexelvotes2012.
