At The University of Olivet, the Campus Vote Initiative is available to students to learn more about voting and getting involved with elections. Junior, Rivkie Biritz, representative for the Campus Vote Initiative, said, “The role was introduced here on campus to give students accessible assistance with voting registration, and to foster a positive political environment that is geared toward improvement and learning. Voting, politics, and development of personal opinion are more important than ever before, and Campus Vote aims to empower students politically.”
