The Volunteer State Community College Student Government Association will host a variety of events to encourage students to register to vote during Sept.
Voter registration tables will be available in the tiled dining room of the Woods Campus Center on Sept. 11-13, and 19 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m..
Other events also taking place in the Woods Campus Center is SGA Meet-n-Greet With A Treat and CAB Cafe: The Arcade on Sept. 25 from 12:45 p.m. until 1:45 p.m.
This event will consist of games, prizes, floats and the opportunity to register to vote.
Vol State is also in a social media contest with other schools in the state, according to SGA Student President Haly Brazel.
“We have partnered with the board of regents and the other colleges to do a social media contest where we have to use hashtags whenever you register,” said Brazel.
“There is a statewide hashtag, #GovoteTn, and the Vol State hashtag is #pioneerpoll,” she said.
The SGA Meet -n-Greet With A Treat came about because, “we have all these people who play card games and we want to do something for them,” said Brazel.
