“It’s their community. It’s their environment, their campus, you know their world; our world,” said Caicedo, adding that today’s youth are our future leaders.
“Getting students to understand that as future leaders, they also have a responsibility and just a calling, even, to get active on the campus and in the community to make their voices heard.”
Tim Minotas, president of Central Michigan University’s College Democrats, went door-to-door with the group #VoteMob over the past month to make sure students had the knowledge to register and were aware of their deadlines.
He said going to residence halls and apartments benefitted the students who lived there, people who he believed might otherwise not have the time to register.
“It’s important to get out there and vote. Students need to realize we are part of the Millennial generation,” Minotas said. “We are (almost) the largest generation in history and we make up a majority of the voting population. If we stand up and speak out, we can make the change we want to see in this country. We have the power.”
