Nearly Two Dozen Colleges Participate in Statewide Voter Registration Drive
(Published: October 1, 2014)
Nearly two dozen colleges across Tennessee partnered with the Secretary of State's office to participate in a monthlong voter registration drive during September. The campaign in honor of National Voter Registration Month resulted in more than 1,000 Tennesseans becoming registered to vote.
Twenty-three colleges - some public, some private, some four-year universities and some community colleges - opened voter registration booths on their campuses at different times throughout the month. Students, faculty members and administrators all participated in the effort. Those assisting people in registering to vote at the booths were given registration forms, voter information guides, banners and copies of the "I'm Registered to Vote. Are You?" signs used in the Secretary of State's social media campaign. (In that campaign, which also occurred during the month of September, people were encouraged to take photos of themselves holding the signs and post them on social media outlets.)
