Another successful week is in the books thanks to all essential pieces of the puzzle here at Long Beach State. We have exciting plans ahead of us, and I am thrilled to be sharing them with you.

We, as our nation's youth, have the future in our hands. I cannot fully express in words how important it is that all students at Long Beach State register and participate in your local, state and national elections. To facilitate this process, ASI has recommitted ourselves to continue to drive voter registration efforts. You can also register here for an easy, online experience.

Beginning next week, be on the lookout for our voter registration tables. Don't be a stranger! As competitors in the Ballot Bowl competition, we are hoping to meet and register as many students as possible - not just for the betterment of our community, but to prove that Long Beach State has the most motivated student body out of all of the CSUs. Come to support your democracy, become an active citizen, and help the Beach come out on top as Ballot Bowl champions!
