'Vote 2020' event seeks to educate CMU voters

The Multicultural Academic Student Services office in the Bovee University Center on the campus of Central Michigan University, Wednesday, Feb. 19, 2020.

A new event called "Vote 2020," sponsored by the Multicultural Academic Student Services (MASS), is scheduled for 6-8 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 26 in the Bovee University Center Auditorium.

MASS Assistant Director Wade Tomson said the event expands on this year’s theme for Black History Month, which is about African Americans voting. The event is described as an “informational program about current presidential candidates, political stances, and political parties.” It is not a debate.

“It has been said countless times that folks of color have the power to determine an election —if they vote,” Tomson said.

All students could find "Vote 2020" to be a beneficial experience. Both the College Democrats and the College Republicans have been invited to describe their points of view. The intent is to educate attendees about what’s at stake in this year’s presidential election. The goal is for everyone to leave the event as a better-informed voter.
