Scenes from Walk To Vote 2018

The Texas primary election is March 6, but students took steps (literally) to vote early during the recent Walk To Vote rally. Led by UHD's Student Government Association with support from University leadership and community partners (including ABC13 and Univision), this event celebrates civic engagement with a pre-poll party and a march to cast ballots.

The primary election Walk To Vote event offered participants an opportunity to meet with area candidates including UHD alumni Fran Watson (running for State Senate, District 17) and Rosalyn "Rozzy" Shorter (running for Harris County District Clerk). Local singer Mel Rose delivered the National Anthem prior to the actual walk to vote at the Harris County Law Library.
