Three Baker Ambassadors have a big idea to get the UT community to participate in the November 6 presidential election. Charleigh Cagle, Lisa Dicker, and Alexandra Chaisson led a voter registration drive at UT.

The drive started September 26 and ends at 5:00 p.m. today. Tables will be set up until 5:00 p.m. at the Howard Baker Center, suite 302, and from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at Hodges Library, first floor.

The three ambassadors said voting is an important and easy way to get involved with the government.

“Sometimes it is difficult to voice your opinion, so voting is the easiest way to play a role in your government and influence politics,” Chaisson said.

Student organizations involved in the voter registration include Baker Ambassadors, Baker Scholars, the Baker Center Learning Community, SGA Freshman Council, SGA Student Services Committees, and the Dean’s Student Advisory Council.

The last day to register to vote at your local election commission office is October 8. Early voting runs from October 17 through November 1.
