Dear SUNY Oswego Faculty, Staff, and Students;
As of 10:30am on October 4th we have 788 registration and absentee ballot applications completed. Though we are proud of our campus for showing us support during this crucial time in our country’s history, we will continuing to push towards our goal of 1,000. With 212 forms and a 8 days remaining until the registration deadline, we’re doing everything we can to make sure our campus is well represented and that your voice will be heard on November 6th.
Overal, as stated above, we have had great support from students, faculty, and staff throughout our campaign. However, we often hear students say, “I don’t want to vote, these issues don’t directly affect me” or “I don’t know anything about politics.” Knowledge is key to our country moving forward regardless of who wins the election. Every citizen should be engaged with their country’s political stances domestically and internationally. Our republic is based on the hopes that people want to be involved and have their voice heard, so go out there and learn about what’s going on, because it does affect you and it will continue to do so throughout your life.
Get educated, be engaged, and go vote.
Civic Engagement & the SUNY Oswego Rock the Vote team
