Kish voter education program coming to campus in February

The voter education program Let’s Vote! is coming to Kishwaukee College in February. Let’s Vote! is designed to educate people on various aspects of the election process. The interactive event will take place in Kish’s Student Lounge (C1130) on February 12 and February 18 from 9:00 am – 12:00 pm and February 24 from 9:00 am – 2:00 pm. The event is free and open to the public. New and seasoned voters are encouraged to attend to educate themselves on the 2020 local and federal elections.

“The program came from a recognized need for voter education in the community,” says adjunct education instructor Cynthia DeSeife. “Many people including faculty, students and the student services department have been collaborating for months to ensure Let’s Vote! provides the best information and resources to help people make informed voting decisions.”

Attendees can learn in greater detail how the election process works from voter registration to casting a ballot. Various local civic groups will be in attendance including the League of Women Voters. Participants will have an opportunity to get their voter questions answered, review some of the issues and learn where to find reliable information on candidates and topics.

The event is co-sponsored by Kish’s Student Government Association (SGA). The SGA is the officially recognized student representative group at the College. Its committees are responsible for addressing the concerns of students, providing programs and services for students, chartering campus clubs and organizations and assisting these groups in achieving their goals.

Attendees are encouraged to park in lot A and enter through door 6.
