Victoria College Black Student Union Raises Voter Awareness

Leaders say not to take voting for granted



Victoria, Texas – Younger people traditionally have a low voter turnout rate… now an organization at Victoria College is working to change that.

The Victoria College Black Student Union spent Monday educating and registering people to vote.

Carol Stehling with Victoria College is looking forward to the day when she can vote.

“I am here legally, I have my green card, but that does not give me the privilege to vote. Coming from Brazil, where I always voted, I miss having the opportunity to choose who my representatives are,” said Carol Stehling, VC  Academic Advisor.

The Black Student Union plans to have a registration booth available each voting season.
