This item was adapted from a News-Gazette article by Ethan Simmons on October 13, 2022. The article covered topics from the recent Champaign County Community Coalition meeting.
"Ann Prisland of the League of Women Voters communicated the gravity of the upcoming midterm elections. In light of Illinois redistricting, major state and county offices from governor to county board seats are back on the ballot. Early voting and voter registration are available at the Brookens Center. "
"A new initiative of the League is its cohort of student ambassadors, who helped register more than 200 high school students to vote in this year's election. Twelve student ambassadors in Champaign Central, Urbana, Uni High and Unity helped the drive. "
"We were able to get a pretty large group of seniors registered to vote, and even gave them information on what to do after they go to college," said Uni High student ambassador Safa Shakir."
