Associated Students are hosting “We the People,” a campus-wide event with local politicians and CSUN clubs in attendance that aims to inform and entice new and returning voters.

“We hope to get CSUN ready for the general election as a community and also educate everyone on the upcoming political season,” said Ryan Storey, chair of legislative affairs for A.S.

Students for Quality Education, CSUN Student Liberty, CSUN Young Democrats and CSUN Conservative Club will be in attendance on Bayramian Lawn. Several local politicians and the LA County Registration Office will also inform and answer questions students may have.

Music, food and an art wall will also be featured on the lawn.

A voter registration hub and another art wall will be at Matador Square. A.S. will also be providing a free speech area where students can share ideas and have political discussions, according to Storey.

The flyer for the event advertised a voter registration hub at the bookstore lawn, but A.S. chose to move the hub to Matador Square so as not to interfere with construction near the store.

Storey said “We the People” was chosen as a way to reboot the Big Politics events on campus.
