Election 2017


At Virginia Commonwealth University, we — our faculty, staff and students — are partners in our community and leaders in our nation.

Part of the responsibility of being fully engaged in your community means exercising one of your most important rights as Americans: voting.

Every election is important. The commonwealth will have the opportunity to select our next governor, lieutenant governor, attorney general, and delegates. The leaders we elect that day will help shape the future of Virginia, its universities, its workforce, economy and much more.

I encourage you to make your voice heard and vote and Nov. 7. When you go, be prepared and know the rules.

The commonwealth counts on the VCU community to be outstanding leaders who help make a difference in the lives of other people and in our nation, including by exercising one of your most important civil right: voting.
