What does 60 by 16 Do?
The 60 by 16 Commission serves as ASUCI’s Official Voter Registration Campaign. Beginning in 2014, the 60 by 16 commission aims to get 60% of the student body registered to vote by the 2016 national election in November. We are a nonpartisan voter registration campaign and focus our events on promoting voter education and engagement.
In order to meet this goal, we actively register students to vote by setting up booths on campus, reaching out to students through classrooms, and hosting various events through the year. Our events include keynote speeches and forums by elected officials, community leaders, and candidates for political office, Voter Registration Carnivals for National Voter Registration Day, Presidential Debate Screenings, as well as hosting our annual Campus Debate Series, which began in 2016. Our mission is to empower students to vote, because every vote matters.
I’m Jackson Brians, and I so am excited to work on the voter registration efforts here at UCI! Outside of ASUCI, I spend lots of time pursuing music, writing, and a number of on-campus student organizations. Politics, as annoying as they can be, are immensely important to us all, which is why I care so deeply about both voter awareness and registration. We’d love your help in getting our campus more involved in the democratic process!
