Get out the student vote

That is one of the core goals of Penn Leads the Vote (PLTV), a student-run nonpartisan organization in the Netter Center for Community Partnerships, that collaborates with the Office of Government and Community Affairs (OGCA), with support from Fox Leadership and the Sachs Program for Arts Innovation.

John Legend was the main act for Stand Up & Vote at Penn, performing at Irvine Auditorium for students on Oct. 2.

On Tuesday, Sept. 24, National Voter Registration Day, members of PLTV took to College Green, setting up tables piled with stacks of voter registration forms, and flyers for the Stand-Up & Vote comedy, performance, and voter registration drive on Wednesday, Oct. 2. That event featured John Legend, Mike Birbiglia, Aparna Nancherla, Josh Johnson, and Michelle Wolf, and was co-hosted by President Amy Gutmann. In addition to getting students to register to vote, some for the first time, the hope is to initiate a lifelong habit of voting and civic engagement.
