About 59 percent of eligible voters between the ages of 18 and 24 voted in the 2016 national election, according to Statistic Brain. One School of Arts and Sciences junior hopes to change this statistic by implementing a University holiday for national election day.Christopher Markosian, a School of Arts and Sciences Senate leader at-large, said he believes there are many reasons individuals between 18 and 24 did not vote in this past election, including time constraints, voting in inconvenient polling places and being out of town. “All of these reasons apply to University students who, at the time of election, most likely do not reside at their permanent home addresses,” he said.In order to fix this issue, Markosian and School of Arts and Sciences sophomore and Senate Leader Julie Serrano proposed an amendment to the University academic calendar to designate any election day as a University holiday, with no classes held that day, Markosian said.He said the cancellation of classes would encourage students to vote and emphasize the importance of election day.“Members of the Rutgers community would be able to act and reflect on the importance of voting, allowing for a larger voter turnout among the population," he said.
