Remarks No further information is available about this resolution.
Whereas The right to vote is a precious commodity taken for granted by many; and
Whereas College age students as a collective group are in an important voting block come election time; and
Whereas Politicians realizing the above fact may be more responsive to pro-higher education legislation if they know the potential of college age voting.
Be It Further Resolved That UTA establish a system whereby a student admitted into the university is also registered to vote at the same time; and
Be It Further Resolved That If the admitted student is not of voting age at that time, it can be done at the first registration period applicable.
