Stating that within the African American community, we have the stigma of not voting and only voting when it is time to vote for the President of the United States, Iota Phi Theta and Sigma Gamma Rho have joined forces in the iVote movement within the #MuchMoreThanAHashtag initiative to get the community involved and registered to vote.
“The Presidential election is a big deal, but there are other elections that are important which makes our government work within the city, state, and county. Voting for mayors, state representatives and Congress representatives are important as well,” according to a release by David T. Boyd, Director of Communications at Iota Phi Theta, adding “It is time to end that stigma and show others that we want our voices heard. iVote educates individuals about voting in every election on every level.”
“National Voter Registration Day is on Tuesday, September 25, 2018. On this day, Iota Phi Theta Fraternity, Inc. and Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc. will continue to promote within #MuchMoreThanAHashtag and get individuals registered to vote through voter registration drives and promotions all over their respected chapters and areas.”
The press released also stated that we should vote “In Every Election. On Every Level.”
