Rally Encourages Voter Registration

Rally Encourages Voter Registration

Associated Students Inc. (ASI) has organized Bronco Voter Rush 2004, a campus-wide initiative to get students registered to vote.

On Thursday, Oct. 7, at noon, an event to encourage women to vote will be held in the University Quad. Three distinguished speakers — Claremont mayor Sandy Baldonado, Chino mayor Eunice Ulloa, and Cal Poly Pomona professor of sociology Faye Wachs — will encourage students to register and vote, as well as discuss political issues that can affect them. In addition, distinguished female disc jockey Roslynn will perform. This event is organized by ASI's Student Government in collaboration with the ReEntry & WoMen's Resource Center and the National Organization for Women.

Upcoming events include Trek Life and The Movement at University Park on Tuesday, Oct. 12, from noon to 1 p.m. On Wednesday, Oct. 13, MTV's Rock The Vote is scheduled at University Park from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

ASI leaders coordinated Bronco Voter Rush 2004 because they believe student voices make a difference, and they want to ensure those voices are heard. The program's primary goal is to register 4,000 students by Oct. 13.  or more information about Bronco Voter Rush, contact ASI Public Relations at (909) 869-2158 or e-mail asipr@asi.cpp.edu.
