International student helps get the (U.S.) vote out

St. Norbert students didn't have to travel far to register to vote in today's election. This year, two staff members and four interns from the Peace and Justice Center became certified voter registration deputies, offering students a convenient opportunity to register to vote on campus.

Fifty-eight voters took advantage of the chance to register through the Peace and Justice Center during the three weeks registration was available.

Adi Redzic '09 is one of the interns currently involved in encouraging informed student participation in the election. Although he is not a U.S. citizen and so will not be able to vote himself, Redzic is passionate about political involvement and believes he can still influence others despite the fact that he can't directly participate in the election. He has worked to create educational opportunities in order to both inform and encourage students to become politically active.

Redzic says that voting "is a privilege you have in the United States. By voting you can influence decisions and make the world a better place. No one should take the ability to voice an opinion for granted."

In addition to registering voters, the Peace and Justice Center also sponsored two educational forums on referendums appearing on today's ballot in Wisconsin. Interdisciplinary panels on the death penalty and marriage presented the issues from social, political, historical, economic, legal and religious perspectives. Wisconsin voters will cast their ballots on the Wisconsin Advisory Referendum to re-instate the death penalty, and the Wisconsin Constitutional Amendment Referendum regarding the definition of marriage/civil unions ban.
