Senator Joe Robach was pleased to join students and facility members from MCC on National Voter Registration day to support their voter registration drive. Joe Robach educated students on the importance of registering to vote, as well as voting in elections every year.
This grassroots effort was conducted by staff members of the MCC Democracy Commitment program and members of the MCC Student Senate. The idea behind the voter registration drive was to encourage voter participation and registration, issues Senator Joe Robach feels strongly about and takes every opportunity possible to educate people of their importance.
“The United States of America was founded upon voter registration and all citizens having an equal voice in their government; that’s something I believe very strongly in as an Elected Official,” said Senator Joe Robach. “As an Elected Official, it is part of my job to educate the public about voter registration and encourage voter participation.”
Joe Robach was pleased to see so many young college students eager to learn about government and the importance of voter registration during his visit to the MCC campus. Joe Robach believes that fighting for education is not just through advocacy and financial support, but also through empowering people and encouraging them to vote in all elections – federal, state and local elections, as well as school budget and school board elections.
