Lansing, MI-January 19, 2015-Joey Gamrat, candidate for Youth Vice Chair of the Michigan Republican Party has put forth an extensive campaign plan, detailing a 9-step plan for success. Gamrat feels that this plan encompasses all aspects of what the Republican Party needs to strive towards to build a foundation before 2016. While out on the campaign trail, one issue kept arising – many delegates and Republican activists are concerned about how difficult it is for college age students to register to vote. Gamrat has promised to make this a top priority within his campaign and term if elected Youth Chair.
“The delegates see this as a great concern, and as a youth myself, I have seen friends struggle to find the time to register to vote. It’s not that it’s not out there, it’s just not as easy as we think.”
The Secretary of State provides printable forms that can be filled out and sent in via mail. This is one of the easiest voter registration systems, but Gamrat stresses a need for easier access.
“18 year olds want something they don’t have to stress about. Students are worried about their next bill payment, their next exam, and making it to their next class. Students get caught up with life and often times forget about sending in their form. I know that if we build up youth committees within each congressional district and provide them with resources and training, we can provide voter registration to thousands of students across the state through a ground game campaign that will include all universities and colleges across the state, and provide easily accessible registration.”
