QUINCY ( WGEM) -- The 2020 presidential election is right around the corner, and Quincy University wants to educate students on voting rights.
There is a push on Quincy University's campus not only to educate students but to register them to vote. That starts with QU hosting a voting rights night on campus.
Students, faculty, and staff at qu have created a presentation to tell the history of voting in america.
This year marks the 100th year of Women's Sufferage. This presentation will highlight the influential men and women who gave everyone voting rights.
"The right to vote isn’t really something that everyone has had in America. And sometimes we take it for granted. And if we see that people were arrested, people died for a right to vote, kind of a good way to honor those people," said Vicky Eidosn Organizer/ Accounting Professor
"After the voting, we have some people there to help them actually register to vote. So they can vote, register to vote. Vote.Gov Is a good place to go to register to vote. But you know sometimes students need help with that," said Vicky Eidosn Organizer/ Accounting Professor
