L.U.V. – Voting Registration Kickoff Event

Latinos United for Voting (L.U.V.) had their kickoff event for voting registration on Sept. 13 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Lower Quad.

Latinos United for Voting (L.U.V.), which was founded by Soledad Nunez and Lupe Pasillas, is a club that is committed to registering their Latino community to vote and also helping to encourage them to go out and vote in the upcoming presidential election.

The event’s primary focus was getting students and staff aware about voting registration and take two minutes of their day to fill out a voter registration form, while also encouraging them to vote in the upcoming presidential election.

During the event,  members of the L.U.V. club were giving out free Panera bread, and Starbucks coffee for those participants who were already registered to vote or just registered to vote during the event itself, and as well as liking Latinos United for Voting (L.U.V) on Facebook.

Also later in their event, they were selling Carl’s Jr. Big burgers with a choice of a can of soda or bottled water and a small bag of chips for $5. They were selling cans of soda, bottled water, and small bag of chips individually for a $1 each.

They also had DJ Skream from Latino 96.3 during their event from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m., as DJ Skream was giving out some prizes and hosting some friendly competitions.

Overall, the event had a great turnout, as L.U.V. helped register over 200 people to vote, which stated by club co-president Lupe Pasillas, is a record that was previously held by Cypress College, who during one of their events had little under 200 people registered to vote.

Anybody with questions, comments or concerns about the L.U.V. club, can attend their first meeting on Sept. 18 in A205 at 1 p.m.
