Next month at Georgia Southern, you will have the opportunity to vote for your student government representatives.

I have been told that approximately 11 percent of the student body participated in the Student Government Association (SGA) elections last year.  With a population of nearly 20,000 students, this is disheartening. This is your campus, your education, have your voice be heard. Don’t sit back and let the minority that vote have a say that affects every student on this campus.

While I will not use my blog to endorse one candidate over another, I encourage you to get involved, find out about the candidates and what they stand for, what are they bringing to the table and how can they help you, your department, your university.

What are your thoughts regarding low voter turnout? What do you think can/should be done to improve the number of voters from 11 percent to at least 50 (or more) percent? Are you going to vote? Why/why not?
