Student Prevention and Outreach Team (SPOT) provided the St. John Fisher community with resources and information on how to become a registered voter.

Students, faculty and staff were welcomed in the Campus Center on Monday night by SPOT members with the question, “are you registered to vote?”

Absentee ballots, educational materials and the online link to become a registered voter were provided. Within the midst of presidential debates, SPOT members also shared information on political parties to ensure that voters make educated choices.

Shannon Putnam, an employee of SPOT discussed the importance of voting.

“Every vote matters,” she said. “Somebody is going to be our president. So if you have an opinion and want to express that opinion, voting is a great way to do it because it really gets your voice out there.”

To become a registered voter, visit vote.org.
