Visiting Assistant Professor of Government Brian J. Glenn ’91 (yeah, he’s a professor and a Wes alum) teaches a course on Campaigns and Elections* here at Wesleyan. Today, Glenn writes in on something especially relevant to that class, and to all of you:
On Thursday, the Republican Registrar of Voters for the City of Middletown announced that she is invalidating on a technicality roughly half of the 450 or so registration forms submitted by Wesleyan students. This is an outrage, and I encourage each and every student to go down Court Street to Middletown City Hall on Monday the 31st and register in person before the November 1 cutoff.
A line of 2,000 students forming outside the Registrar’s door would send the message that Wesleyan’s students will not tolerate attempts to silence them for partisan ends.
If you ever wondered whether your vote matters, the Republican Registrar just answered that question! Your vote matters. Please register to vote in person on Monday.
Read more about it in the The Middletown Press. More Wesleying coverage coming soon.
