(DALLAS) — To educate voters and encourage civic engagement, all seven campuses of Dallas College will be open to the community for early voting.

Early voting begins Tuesday, Oct. 13, and continues through Friday, Oct. 30. The last day to register to vote in the Nov. 3 election is Monday, Oct. 5.

“Your vote is your voice,” said Isaac Faz, Dallas College’s chief legislative counsel. “Decisions at every level of government affect your day-to-day living, your job opportunities and your access to a quality education.”

“Show up and cast your ballot,” Faz said.​

The League of Women Voters will be on hand to sign up potential voters, and Hot 93.3 will give away mugs, movie tickets and more.
