With early voting for this year’s primary election getting underway across North Carolina, students at Winston-Salem State University worked to motivate their classmates to head to the polls.
Alexandria Turnley, a WSSU student and a Democracy Fellow with Common Cause NC, struck up conversations with students in the cafeteria, giving them facts on same-day registration, voter ID and opportunities to cast a ballot early.
“Most of the students seem like they’re excited to vote, they’re going to go out and they feel like it’s important to them,” Turnley said.
