McNally Smith College Rocked the Vote

McNally Smith and Rock the Vote collaborated this election season to not only register a record number of McNally Smith students, but also to create volunteer opportunities. On Saturday, November 1st, McNally Smith students manned the volunteer positions at the Roy Wilkins Auditorium for the Rock the Vote Action Fund’s Get Out & Vote 2008 concert. This national tour was launched to encourage all voters to become educated about the candidates, and to make their voices heard. The non-partisan show featured the Beastie Boys, Tenacious D and Ben Harper. McNally Smith students provided event attendees with information on the presidential and local senatorial candidates, to promote an informed youth vote. To thank the student volunteers for their contribution, Rock the Vote provided them with free admission to the concert.
