Major voting rights event on campus tomorrow

The Wesleyan chapter of Democracy Matters is hosting a major voting rights event on campus tomorrow night in the Woodhead Lounge. State Representatives from the Government Administration and Elections Committee of the Connecticut General Assembly will be present to hear student concerns regarding voter registration deadlines and how they systematically disenfranchise certain groups, including students, young people, minorities, and people from lower-income backgrounds.

All are invited to participate in this unprecedented opportunity to have their voices heard by real elected officials who hold the power to enact real, substantive change in the state of Connecticut.

What: Forum on Voter Registration
When: 7:15pm, Wednesday night
Where: Woodhead Lounge, Exley Science Center
