Campus Hispanic society enourages spanish-speaking residents to vote

March 23, 2015

Every year, student members of Mecha, the campus Hispanic society at Phoenix Community College fan out across outlying neighborhoods to register voters. Students act as bilingual interpreters for Spanish-speaking residents. Students aim to provide potential voters with the necessary information and encouragement to get involved in the process, giving them information that helps make local issues relevant to their lives, and highlighting the importance of political voice as a way of protecting and promoting their rights.
