Eli Pales life right now is full of plenty of coffee and lots of work. “In previous years we just haven’ t had the people in place that cared enough about voter turn out,” said Pales.
Historically voter turn out in midterm election is low, but this time we are seeing changes said Pales. “We’ve gotten tons and tons of people registered. I’m hearing from the clerk that our voter reg numbers are gonna be on par with the 2016 general election and that’s just absolutely insane,” he said. In fact, Pales says voter registration will end up six times higher than the last midterms.
From on-campus to off-campus, Lansing City clerk, Chris Swope, will have his hands full these next few weeks.
