Penn Leads the Vote (PLTV) volunteers turned out for National Voter Registration Day programming, which included informational and engagement tables that guided hundreds of interested students through the process of registering to vote, checking their registration status, submitting mail-in ballot requests, and much, much more.

That is what Penn Leads the Vote preaches and that’s why we hold these drives every year.”

Williams, originally from Los Angeles, noted how PLTV, which is a student-run, nonpartisan program housed within the Netter Center for Community Partnerships and supported by Penn’s Office of Government and Community Affairs, is always focused on one major goal: to build a culture at Penn surrounding the importance of voting.
