This week, Marywood University officially announced its partnership with Vote Early Day, a movement of nonprofits, businesses, election administrators, and creatives who are working to ensure that Americans understand and utilize their options to vote early this election cycle and beyond. By working with Vote Early Day to create awareness, celebrate community and increase voter education, Marywood hopes to encourage more Americans to exercise their right to vote. Join us on Tuesday, October 20, 2020, from noon – 1 p.m., in the Nazareth Dining Hall for cookies, brownies, and election information. Throughout the day information will be made available, and t-shirts will be distributed at various times/locations throughout the day.
Voting early—by mail and in person—reduces lines on Election Day, provides increased flexibility, and ensures that Americans do not have to choose between their health and their civic duty.
“Give the unprecedented challenges created by the current pandemic, Vote Early Day’s mission is more important than ever,” said Michael Kalage, director of student engagement at Marywood University. “We’re proud to be joining the movement to promote civic responsibility and ensure all eligible voters are aware of their voting options.”
Marywood University is part of a rapidly growing number of colleges, companies, and organizations that have joined Vote Early Day to further their commitment to civic engagement. To learn more about Vote Early Day and how you or your organization can join the movement, visit www.voteearlyday.org.
