The Secretary of State Mobile Office to Visit Ferris on Sept. 10

ExpressSOSAre you registered to vote? If not, the Secretary of State's ExpressSOS Voter Registration Drive will be on the Ferris State University campus from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday, Sept. 10.

"Students are able exercise their rights as registered voters and to understand the platforms of all candidates to help them make the best decision of who they are interested in voting for," said Leroy Wright, dean of Student Life. "Hosting the Secretary of State's voter registration tour opens doors for our students to engage in dialogue in society, while exercising their levels of citizenship, as well as engaging  them in political systems and processes."

In addition to voter registration, the mobile office will be offering other Secretary of State services, such as address changes and driver's license renewals. The office will be on Circle Drive.

"It's important for students to use their rights to produce American democracy. People fought and died for these rights, and if you don't use them, you'll lose them," said Political Science professor Richard Griffin.

The deadline to register to vote in the Nov. 6 general election is Oct. 9.
