Students from the LEAD 101 class, in cooperation with the Office of Civic Engagement, are having a Voter Registration Day on campus from 9:00 a.m.-3:00 p.m., Tuesday, September 22nd, in honor of National Voter Registration Day. Students and employees will be able to register to vote and/or request an absentee ballot. Volunteers will be at tables on The Christy Mall with forms, links, and information.

The General Election in the U.S. is Tuesday, November 3rd, and it is rapidly approaching. It is incredibly important to participate on Election Day as it is your civic duty. When participating it is important to be informed about both candidates and their political beliefs. This year's presidential candidates are President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden. Each candidate has their own beliefs and values. Remember to put in the time to fact check any information you may hear on the news or read on social media if you use it to decide your vote. 

Here are a few places you can read reliable news reporting — these sites have been recommended by students researching election coverage as helpful and generally unbiased:
