Close to 5,000 Students Registered Statewide

By Samantha Gibb

Through everything from class announcements, tabling, and dorm presentations to clip boarding at events and bus stops ConnPIRG interns and volunteers registered close to 5,000 students statewide at UConn Storrs, UConn Greater Hartford Campus, Trinity College, Central Connecticut State University and Southern Connecticut State University. At UConn Storrs, through the UConn Votes Coalition, we helped more than 20% of the undergraduate population register to vote or update their registration. 

 

Thanks to all of the great interns and volunteers, as well as to all the student organizations and univeristy partners who helped make this happen.

We'll shift our work over the next week to making sure everyone makes it to the polls on election day.
