Voter Registration a Success

Fatima Nieves registered future voters at the LLC event.

Retired Counselor Fatima Nieves, with library employees Kevin Lyons and Nan Schichtel, registered 32 new voters for the upcoming November elections – and beyond.  They spoke to over 100 students, faculty, and staff on Tuesday, September 13th. “It was encouraging to hear so many students tell us that they were already registered to vote!,” Schichtel noted.

Registrants will receive their voter registration card in the mail within 2-3 weeks, along with information on their polling place. And some of them will receive extra credit – some classroom faculty offered extra credit for a snapshot of the registration form!
