On Tuesday, September 18th, a group comprised of 70 Deputy Registrars will dispatch a team to the Clartk Atlanta University to register hundreds of students for the upcoming presidential election. Special focus and information will be directed toward 18 and 19 year-old students who will cast votes for the very first time.
The event begins with the annual fall convocation at 11:00 am in the CAU gym.
Dr. Joseph Lowery will serve as speaker followed by a march to the CAU Student Center at Fair and Mildred Street where students will begin the process of making their voice heard at the polls in November and thereafter. In a pre-event summit, all Greek Letter organizations along with on-campus social activist groups, pledged full support and agreed to augment the AVU registration team with full presence and assistance.
CAU anticipates a very large student response.
As the November 2012 election rapidly approaches, ATLANTA VOTERS UNITED, a local voter education/registration organization will join Clark Atlanta University in an aggressive effort to disseminate crucial information within the college community and to add to the voting roster.
