KFTC registers 252 voters at EKU

Last week, the Madison County chapter of KFTC partnered with Eastern Kentucky University for a Rock the Vote festival on campus. Despite the rain, hundreds of students gathered for a cookout and live music. Chapter members Margaret Ricketts and David Fields, along with student volunteers, registered two hundred fifty-two voters over the course of the day.

At lunch the rush to register was so long that a registration table and clipboards in the crowd still left people in line. But they waited patiently. Many students were excited about the opportunity to vote in their first presidential election.
