Be Sure to “Run to the Polls” on Oct. 30 - with COM 352 and Other Engaged Voters!

Symbolizing civic duty and community engagement, UNCW’s COM 352 (Election Campaign Communication) is holding the Inaugural Run to the Polls event on October 30, bringing members of the UNCW community together as they run, walk, or bike from campus to the Board of Elections to take part in early voting. This event is part of a greater UNCW Communication Studies applied learning course that is working for campus voters in conjunction with the City of Wilmington to inform voters on the City’s 2014 Transportation Bond, on the ballot as Streets and Sidewalks. Run to the Polls will offer entertainment, food and prizes, and special guest Mayor Bill Saffo, who will open the event at 5 p.m. “Run to the Polls” seeks to encourage the entire UNCW and Wilmington community to become informed, engaged voters. Registration is free, and participants can upgrade for $5 to include a T-shirt and post-voting reception at “Might as Well” on Racine Drive. Check out Run to the Poll’s Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for specified times and more information. Participants can register at tables on campus or on the day of event.
