Sign this for the cancellation of classes on Election Day, Nov. 3rd, 2020. By canceling class on Election Day, Nov. 3rd, 2020, it will increase the participation among Randolph-Macon Students, Faculty, and Staff in the 2020 Election by allowing the Randolph-Macon community to travel to their polling places and cast votes without unjust consequence from Randolph-Macon College for fulfilling their civic duty. According to U.S. Census, just under 20% of voters cited "being too busy or having conflicting work schedules" as reasons for not voting. Many students, faculty, and staff often cannot participate in voting because of school, classes, and work prevent them from traveling to their polling places; this petition would allow for them to vote. Also, Randolph-Macon would be modeling after the City of Richmond, which gives its employees the day off for voting. By having Election Day 2020 off, this would demonstrate Randolph-Macon's seriousness towards motivating and encouraging its students, faculty, and staff to vote.
