IU works to increase on-campus civic engagement
Oct. 19, 2016
IU is all in this election season. With All In Democracy Challenge Walk2Vote events, they are providing an opportunity for students to be heard this election.
IU senior Sidney Harris has voted in previous elections. But she felt particularly proud casting her vote on the first day of early voting this year -- her first presidential election.
“It felt good to vote,” said the sociology major. “I voted twice before this, and I think this is the most exciting time.”
Harris, along with a couple of dozen IU students and staff, marched to the voting polls Oct. 12 as part of IU’s Walk2Vote. The event -- hosted by IU’s Political and Civic Engagement program, or PACE -- gave students an opportunity to come together to celebrate voting.
