Registering voters and recruiting CSI at East LA College

Student registering to vote
This student registered to vote in time for the June primary election. The great majority of students told us they had already registered to vote.

For almost a century the League of Women Voters (LWV) has focused its efforts on registering voters.  Women, men, whatever party they prefer–they are actively encouraged to register to vote.

And now young people age 16 and 17 are allowed to pre-register and be ready to vote when they turn 18.  This means that the LWV members are now visiting high schools around the nation registering prospective voters.

This week the LWV Pasadena Chapter set up a table in the plaza at East LA College on Wednesday and Thursday and here are some photos of what happened.

Recruiting CSI at East LA college
On Wednesday there were recruiters from over a dozen different police departments ranging from Santa Barbara to Anaheim. But the one booth that attracted the most attention was this one. They were not the only crime lab at the event, but they had the catchiest sign.
East LA College cheerleaders
Of course the cheerleaders turned out to support both the voter registration and the new ELAC Alumni Association.
The new ELAC Alumni Association had a table right next to the LWV. On day 2, Thursday, the school Mascot made an appearance to support their effort.



Playing games at East LA College
On Thursday it was all fun and games during the lunch break at East LA College. Wednesday had been much more serious.
Noon time fun at East LA College
Wow! When I went to college we didn’t have bouncy houses or games at noon. Once, I remember, we had a dance outdoors in the evening. Things have changed.
