Marching 100 Adds Some Flavor To Early Voting

Posted by thelense on Wednesday, October 22, 2008

Once the rattlers arrived at the capital to early vote the Marching 100 provided some flavor for the occasion. Definitely added to the experience and just made the day even more exciting than it already was! Love my school, my band, and of course this historic election and the fact that I was able to participate.

FAMU hosted a Wake Up The Vote Rally on Monday October 20th, 2008 to kick of the first day of Early Voting in Florida. City Commissioner Bill Proctor and many others came out to FAMU’s eternal flame to mark the historic day and prepare for a march to the state capital to cast their votes. Over 800 students took part in the march to the capital!

The city commissioner was decked in the most orange and green I have ever seen on person where seriously! That man rocks!

FAMU Makes Sure Last Minute Voters Are Registered!

Posted by thelense on Monday, October 6, 2008

Well today was the last day to register to vote in the state of Florida. If you are reading this post and haven’t registered to vote then its probably already to late for you. FAMU alum Monique Gillum and a few other dedicated rattlers manned down the set and registered all those last minute folks who were to lazy to get registered before hand. I was glad that they were on the set today because the new voter registration card that I was sent has a mistake on it. For some reason the people at the elections place didnt match up my birthday. So, the birthday on my voter registration card is 6 days off from the one on my Drivers License. But no big deal, Monique Gillum made sure that I was taken care of! I know the turnout from FAMU students is going to be HUGE in this election. Because regardless fo what they say Famuans are registered in big numbers and will surely turn out to the polls in big numbers (atleast I hope so).

Fired Up And Ready To Vote!

Important: Regardless of who you are voting for please make sure you get to the polls and take part in this hisotrical election!
