With the Oct. 2 vice presidential debate quickly approaching, many people are looking for ways to get more involved in the political process.
To help facilitate interest and participation in the debate and election, the Richard A. Gephardt Institute for Public Service is coordinating an all-day, campus-wide voter registration drive Sept. 18.
Eligible students, faculty and staff will be able to register to vote in Missouri or complete a change of address card at one of 11 locations across the University.
Voters also can learn about how to register in another state and/or obtain an absentee ballot.
United States citizens who will be 18 or older Nov. 4 are eligible to vote, and should bring a photo ID and one additional form of identification in order to register Sept. 18. A Washington University student or staff ID is acceptable.
This nonpartisan voter registration effort is cosponsored by several undergraduate, graduate and professional school student groups.
Confirmed locations for the registration drive include:
• Mallinckrodt Student Center main floor, 9:15 a.m.-5 p.m.
• Danforth University Center, 9 a.m.-9 p.m.
