Hello fellow members of the SJU Community, 

The Pride Executive Board is looking for your support as the 2020 election is approaching.  We as a community have been repeatedly been told how important it is to vote, but yet we are not being supplied with the time to take to the polls and vote. This is especially important given the controversy we know will follow the election given the U.S. mail system and the voting process. 

We are asking for you to share and sign this petition to get the day off from class so that we can make it to the polls. It is our civic duty and we should be given the resources and support that we need to ensure as many members of our community have access to do just that. Many of us live in driving distance or just need the time too get home or to our voting locations. We are civically engaged young adults and we should be given the chance to make it to the polls without fear of missing an important class or assignment. 

With COVID-19, we are expecting to encounter longer lines and wait times for voting in person and as students, we should not have to fear missing something critical for our learning. We should not have to choose between our education and partaking in one of the most important elections of this decade.
