‘Rock The Vote’ Registers Young Voters At IU

Tuesday is the final day to register to vote in Indiana.

On the last day of voter registration in Indiana, the nationwide voter registration campaign Rock The Vote parked its truck on Indiana University’s campus in a final effort to reach young voices.

Rock The Vote Tour manager Michelle Clark says it’s possible many young people don’t vote because they believe the issues don’t apply to them.

“12,000 people turn 18 every single day so in this country so I think it’s important that they realize how how many of them there are and if they all go out and vote they can definitely make a change. Whatever it is that your opinions are, there’s something that affects you out there so there’s something that you you definitely want to have your voice heard about,” he says.

Some students, including freshman Skylar Kennedy of South Bend, say they were not planning on registering but did so because of the nudge from Rock The Vote.

“I think young people are pretty much the future of this country and they need to be able to share their voice and opinions,” she says.

Rock The Vote hopes to register one-and-a-half million voters this election cycle.
