FHU College Republicans Conduct Voter Registration Drive
With the Tennessee Presidential Preference Primary just over a month away, the Freed-Hardeman University College Republicans conducted a campus voter registration drive Jan. 23-27. The College Republicans provided students with information on voter registration, early and absentee voting and the new voter ID requirements in Tennessee. Voter registration forms were also made available to unregistered voters.
Jared Pack, president of the FHU College Republicans, said, “The voter registration drive has been a huge success. We had an incredible response from students and it exceeded our expectations. It's really encouraging to see so many students actually getting involved in this crucial election.”
The College Republicans is a student political organization sponsored by Dr. Stephen Morris, associate professor of political studies at FHU. The organization promotes Republican ideals and candidates and encourages participation in politics and civic activities. The College Republicans also work to become future leaders in the conservative movement.
The FHU College Republicans will be hosting an event with Tennessee Secretary of State Tre Hargett on campus March 1 at 2:30. “The event will be an election forum talking about primaries, the importance of voting and the impact of our generation,” Pack said. The community is invited to attend this event.
