Why Vote?

Isabella HambrickIsabella Hambrick
Project Management Major

"The leaders we elect have a great influence over our freedom and voting is an opportunity to promote, protect, and preserve godly government. As a Christian I want to stand up and follow the command to fulfill my civic duty."

 

Ezra AndersonEzra Anderson
Theatre Arts Major

"I vote because everyone doesn’t get the chance to. There are many places where you don’t have the right to make decisions in your country. I am glad I can have an influence in the place where I live."

Shaquille CookShaquille Cook
Psychology Major

"I find voting to be one of the most important tasks for me as a Christian and American. I have the opportunity to go to the polls and let my voice be heard of who I feel would be the next leader of this fine country. I see the importance and power in voting which is why I take it seriously and will be hitting the polls in November!"

Sarah SanchezSarah Sanchez
Worship Leader Major

"I vote to provoke change, it is my civil duty as a citizen of the US, and it influences others to practice their right to vote. "
