51 students registered to vote at Georgetown College today

gIMG_7172KFTC and  Georgetown Sociology Club members registered voters at Georgetown College earlier today, bringing in 51 voter registration in just a little over two hours.

Most conversations focused on letting students know that they have the right to register either using their local campus address or their permanent address back home.  In most cases, it's better to vote locally where it's the easiest, but we also helped half a dozen students from Ohio to think through the process of voting absentee back home where it might have a big impact on the presidential election. 

KFTC members Michelle Flannery and Caliesha Comley did a fantastic job of initiating conversations with students and helping get them registered to vote.

"This was a lot more fun than I thought it would be," said Michelle Flannery. "I mean I thought it would be fun, but wow.  This is kind've exciting."

Scott County KFTC members will continue their voter registration efforts this weekend at the Festival of the Horse.
