Hosted by the Social Justice Club, a group of students volunteered for the Democratic committee in the town of Kent. Under the guidance of Dr. Dallett, the Social Justice Club’s advisor, students advocated for congressional candidates such as Jahana Hayes and spread awareness of voting. With the midterm vote on Tuesday, November 6th, the committee delivered a powerful and moving message on the importance of voting to anyone who stopped by.

Located on 4 N. Main Street, next to Ore Hill & Swyft, this space was opened by the committee on October 20th. The Social Justice Club members had a taste of political campaigning, along with plenty of free pizza. In the building, volunteers all over town worked on campaigns for candidates from the Democratic Party.

“Our job is to spread the knowledge of voting, and help guide those willing to go through the voting process with us,” states Armstrong, an active campaign worker. Dr. Dallett is also an active member of this committee. As the secretary of the organization, she reached out to host the pizza party for students last Saturday evening. During the gathering, students were able to brainstorm, talk about the process of campaigning, and even make calls to encourage townspeople to show support in the upcoming U.S. Congress election.

An extremely beneficial experience, many Kent students were honored to have contributed to the midterm elections this year. With voter turnout being at a high this year, especially among young adults, students hope to take an active stance in politics in the future.
