ROCHESTER, Minn. – As Election Day nears, the push to get youth involved is rising.
In fact, several colleges in Minnesota are taking part in what’s called “Ballot Bowl.” The idea is to have colleges compete against each other to see which one gets the most students to register for Election Day. That includes Rochester Community and Technical College, which has a booth set up where students can register on the spot. School leaders tell us despite some students not liking the presidential candidates, it’s still important for them to vote for local elections.
Other colleges taking part include Riverland Community College Austin and Albert Lea campuses as well as the University of Minnesota-Rochester.
