NOC Is Runner-Up in State Voter Registration Contest

Named runner-up in the Oklahoma Campus Compact (OkCC) Voter Registration Contest, Northern Oklahoma College sent students and administrative representatives to Oklahoma City to receive its 2016 voter registration award.

NOC students registered 193 voters during Constitution Week in September. Students from the President’s Leadership Council, Criminal Justice Club, SADD, Radio Club, College Democrats, and Young Republicans encouraged students to vote through class presentations, voter registration booths, and canvassing residence halls.

The contest was sponsored by Campus Compact, a service learning organization. Twenty-three Oklahoma colleges and universities participated in the voter registration drive by registering 3,622 in-state and 136 out-of-state students. Contest winners were based on a percentage of the total enrollment for the college.
