The Office of Student Inclusion and Diversity will run the Vikings Vote campaign Sept. 21-Oct. 2.

The purpose of this campaign is to educate, register, vote and empower the campus community. Campaigners will register students to vote in the Nov. 3 general election.

They also will help students to get out and vote or help them with the absentee or vote by mail process.
