Tennessee Secretary of State Tre Hargett will be in the Student Center on the campus of Jackson State Community College Thursday, September 24 from 2:15 to 2:45 p.m. He will be encouraging students to get registered to vote as part of the #GoVoteTN campaign.
Secretary Hargett is visiting more than a dozen campuses and conducting voter registration drives during the month of September, which is National Voter Registration Month. The drives are being held in conjunction with the #GoVoteTN social media campaign to encourage others to register to vote.
As part of the social media campaign, people are encouraged to have someone take a picture of them holding an “I’m registered to vote. Are you?” sign. Then post it to Twitter, Facebook and Instagram using the hashtag #GoVoteTN. Anyone can print their own sign at GoVoteTN.com, which can be customized to the colors of many of the state’s colleges, universities or professional sports teams. People can also check their registration status or access a voter registration form.
