Voters’ Rally a Success

By and

Student leaders say the U’s first ever Rock the Vote celebration was a huge success.

As evidence leaders cite: a packed crowd at Kingsbury Hall, Oct. 10, to hear Ralph Nader, 3,000 students who attended an Everclear concert Oct 16, and more than 1,000 voter registration forms filled out by students during the course of the week.

Organizer Kelly Ann Booth said student government learned valuable lessons while planning the events. They hope to use this information to impact U voter turn-out during the November elections, as well as lobbying the state Legislature in the spring.
