Vote100 Pledge and Voter Registration

Tuesday, Oct 9, 2018

Hello Butlerites,

 

We are nominating everyone in Butler to take the Vote100 Pledge. The pledge doesn’t register you to vote, but is a declaration that you will commit yourself to participating in elections wherever eligible. Please take the pledge and nominate a friend to do so here!

 

For those seeking information about voter registration, please read the information below. As a special incentive, the Butler College office will place a stamp on your registration so you can send it out with ease! Please come to the office during business hours with your registration form to receive a stamp! Voter registration ends soon so act fast!

 

Students who are not from New Jersey may register to vote in New Jersey or in their home state.  Voter Information for all states can be found at: yourvoteyourvoice.org.  Exercise those rights!
