WCC Prepares Next Generation Of Voters

WCC Prepares Next Generation Of Voters

Wayne Community College prepares its students and staff to take part in the Democratic Process.

Tuesday, September 22nd was National Voter Registration Day, and WCC had a voter registration booth set up inside the Wayne Learning Center Atrium.

WCC student Braden Wilkinson had volunteered to staff the booth Tuesday.

He noted there have been plenty of people showing an interest in voting this November even with the smaller number of students on campus due to COVID-19.

Wilkinson says this will be the first election he votes in, and he’s expecting more younger voters to cast ballots this fall.

Besides registering people to vote, WCC’s booth featured sample ballots and information on other ways citizens can assist on Election Day, November 3.

Elsewhere, the Wayne County Public Library teamed up with the local chapter of the League of Women Voters to engage and register voters at the Goldsboro Library on Tuesday.

National Voter Registration Day is a nonpartisan civic holiday and cross-country effort to assist voters in registering to vote.

October 9th is the last day to register to vote in the November 2020 Election.
