'If you weren't here, I wouldn’t have registered to vote'

By Becca Tabor
National Network for Arab American Communities (NNAAC) Intern

image2_-_Copy.JPGBefore I get to the good stuff, I’d like to briefly introduce myself. My name is Becca, and I joined ACCESS earlier this year as an intern with the National Network for Arab American Communities (NNAAC), one of ACCESS' national institutions. I’m currently studying social work, and I hope to someday become involved in community organizing and policy, particularly around U.S. foreign policy related to immigration and global poverty. I feel really fortunate to be working with everyone here at NNAAC, and I am looking forward to learning more and engaging with the community over the next year.

And now for the main purpose of this post: voter registration!

We witnessed such an important presidential election this year and it was in the heat of it that I started my internship. My first task was working on voter registration. Although I am a big proponent of everyone participating in elections, I had never actually registered people before my internship at NNAAC. The first day I went out to register people I was at Monroe County Community College. I was surprised at how many people were eager to register, and in just three hours I had registered 24 new voters!
