National Voter Registration Week
The Baker Center has partnered with UT Libraries
and the Student Government Association
in an effort to get all Vols ready to Vote. During National Voter Registration Week, September 23-27, students stood at registration tables on Pedestrian Walkway, in the Library, and in the Student Union, and voter participation in 2018 at UT increased by approximately 20%.
From Tuesday, September 24 until Monday, October 7, students may participate in a University-wide voter-registration competition. Students may add to a paper chains, located in the Hodges Library galleria, for:
- registering to vote
- showing their voter registration card if already registered or
- confirming their registration with the Knox County election commission to request an absentee ballot.
At the end of the competition, the college with the most links as a percentage of enrollment, will be announced and recognized with a plaque.
