At Indiana State University, the American Democracy Project (ADP) was out on Tuesday, September 22, which is National Voter Registration Day.
They had a table at the Dede Plaza from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. and helped students get registered to vote.
Once you registered, students got a free t-shirt and sticker representing the ADP and the initiative to be registered to vote. The organization has been outside the fountain for the entire month of September.
With the Presidential Election being less than two months away, spreading the word on voting and being registered are two initiatives that have across the country. In Indiana, specifically, the deadline for voters to register is Monday, October 5, and election day follows on Thursday, November 3, 2020.
With every presidential election year, the full force of political campaigns come out and look to make sure voters are registered and know where they need to be when the election takes place.
The ADP is no different. They offer an intellectual and engaging understanding of civic politics for college undergraduates, who are enrolled in institutions that are members of the American Association of State Colleges and Universities (AASCU). The ADP is a non-partisan organization, that focuses on informing students on why it is so important to vote and why your vote means.
If you want to know more about the ADP or just learning about politics in general, they have meetings at the Center for Community Engagement on Tuesday at 5 p.m. in the conference room.
