- The public is invited to attend a voter registration drive
Tuesday, February 2, at the Lincoln Heritage Museum on the Lincoln
College Campus. All non-registered voters in Logan County are
encouraged to attend and complete voter registration forms.
Ashley Poole, Lincoln College sophomore and Student Senate
Representative, initiated the event. Poole has a passion for
politics and became a certified deputy registrar in January.
Volunteers will be available at the drive to help attendees fill out
voter registration forms and complete the process to become a
registered voter. Poole says she wants students and the community to
understand the importance of voting.
“The registration drive is to ensure that we are making a real
change by getting students and members of the community more active
in their government” stated Poole. “Only about 18% of my generation
votes, so I think it is important that we get involved and vote so
our interests can be reflected in our government.”
