Concordia University, for the first time, will be an early voting location for voters registered in Travis County, thanks to the help of music professor Dr. Kim Perlak. Any registered voter in Travis County can vote here on Tuesday, October 23 in Building A from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Last month, Dr. Perlak took 22 students to the Travis County Tax Office during Constitution Week to become a volunteer Deputy Registrars.
Following the class, students held a ‘Rock The Vote’ event September 24 and 25 on campus, incorporating live guitar music from the civil rights movement and signing up students to vote in the November election.
Dr. Perlak’s mission was to encourage students to vote.
“Students were inspired through the music and history to do something,” said Perlak. “Before this, students said they didn't feel part of the political process, but music is a powerful motive for them.”
