Last week, at North Carolina Central University in Durham, the Rock the Vote team was on the ground to help new students with a very important part of the college transition: registering to vote at your new address. The NCCU student government was also on the scene to help us out. With their help, we registered hundreds of students to vote and every freshman received a voter registration form.
New students came to us and did not even hesitate to register when asked. Just like registering for classes, buying books, picking up their keys and entering the lottery for basketball tickets, registering to vote was simply another exciting part of the move-in process. As we continue to meet and register new students to vote in North Carolina and around the country, we know students will keep embracing the opportunity to have a real impact in their new homes.
