Hundreds of laws are passed into legislation each year that affect us and our families however, statistics show most students are unaware and uninterested on how such laws change our future. For decisions that affected student-related issues like student debt, educational funding and the economy, only 8% of eligible student voter cast their ballot in 2014. Due to these staggeringly low numbers, the Associated Students of Riverside City College has committed to educating and encouraging students to exercise their voice.
America’s Democracy needs your participation. Voting is the tool used for representative democracy. Students can affect change in legislation, policies and social services that affect the success of the country and our everyday lives.
Why leave your future up to someone else to decide? In some local elections, ballot decisions can be decided by a matter of a few votes! That means YOU have the power to make a difference.
