The Campus Activities Board hosted a Cupcakes and Voting event where students could decorate cupcakes and see where they’re polling location is.

CAB hosted the event to encourage students to vote in the midterm elections on Tuesday, November 6.

While learning information about voting and polling locations, students could decorate a free cupcake to decorate with patriotic toppings.

“Everyone should vote,” Neena Robertson, the CAB adviser said. “We thought this event was a good idea because it serves as a reminder to vote for students who forgot what day it was or got busy during the week.”

In a Campus Current social media poll of 116 followers, 74 percent said they are voting today.

Robertson says she wishes that AACC was a polling location because it might make it more convenient for students to vote.

CAB members said they are hoping to raise awareness about the importance and those who are running of voting to students.

In a poll conducted by NBC news, 59 percent of young voters said they weren’t aware of the congressional candidates in their district. The poll also showed that less than a third of 18 to 34-year-olds said they will vote in this midterm election.

Students can register to vote online, by mail, and in person when they renew their license or at their local Board of Elections.
