SUBJECT: Register to vote here! columbia.turbovote.org

Dear Columbians,

With Election Day quickly approaching and the importance of civic engagement growing every term, Columbia College Student Council has partnered with the Columbia Political Union, the CU Democrats, the CU College Republicans and Residential Life to make voting easier for the Columbia community.

Thanks to TurboVote, co-founded by CC alum Seth Flaxman, registering to vote, requesting absentee ballots for your home state, and getting text reminders about upcoming elections is quick, easy, and free!

Sign up at columbia.turbovote.org and take part in the digitization of democracy. If you have any questions about the process, email columbiavotes@gmail.com.

See you on campus soon,
Karishma Habbu, CCSC President
