In light of the upcoming presidential election, a new organization called Emory Votes has formed on campus with the intention of helping Emory students register to vote. Emory Votes has a table near the Green Bean coffee cart next to Cannon Chapel where the members of the group provide students with all the forms necessary to register to vote and for an absentee ballot, if necessary. The process is simple and all the necessary forms have been organized to make the process even more convenient for college students that find it difficult to register on their own.

As Americans, voting is our civic duty – one that is often taken too lightly. We would like to commend Emory Votes for their efforts in helping students register to vote and encourage all members of the Emory community to take advantage of this convenient and immensely important service.
