Arizona Student Vote Coalition Kicks Off Week Of Get-Out-The-Vote Activities

Speaker Weiers, Senator Burton-Cahill, Senator Leff, Representative Gallardo and Others to Highlight Importance of Youth Vote
For Immediate Release

Following a successful effort by the Arizona Student Vote Coalition to register thousands of young voters across the state, legislators from both Chambers and both parties joined with student leaders from across the state in a news conference to highlight the importance of youth turnout this Election.

Since 2004, the Arizona Student Vote Coalition which is comprised of the Arizona Public Interest Research Group (Arizona PIRG), the Arizona Students’ Association (ASA), the Associated Students of Arizona State University at the Polytechnic Campus (ASASUP), the Associated Students of Arizona State University at the West Campus (ASASUW), the Associated Students of Northern Arizona University (ASNAU), the Associated Students of the University of Arizona (ASUA), the Graduate and Professional Student Association at Arizona State University at the Tempe Campus (GPSA), and Undergraduate Student Government at Arizona State University at the Tempe Campus (USG), have used time tested and academically reviewed methods to register 18-30 year olds to vote and make personalized voters turnout contacts.

Student leaders will continue to work vigorously to ensure the state’s youth vote momentum continues through Election Day.  In the months leading up to the voter registration deadline, students involved with the Arizona Student Vote Coalition stormed dorms, pounded the pavement, and invaded classrooms to make sure that students were registered to vote.  Representatives of the Arizona Student Vote Coalition reached out to campuses from Flagstaff to Yuma to Sierra Vista and points in between to encourage young people to register and vote.
