We have been busy as of late preparing for Virginia Tech’s Gobblerfest. Gobblerfest is an annual festival held at Virginia Tech with the overall goal of getting students to engage with different campus activities and the surrounding community. Student organizations, non-profit organizations and local businesses flock to the event with free giveaways, games and info about their organization.
This event this year will be held on the Virginia Tech Drillfield on September 4th from 4:00 to 8:00 p.m.
Virginia Tech’s Gobblerfest has been a huge success for Follow My Vote. This will be our third year attending! We have blog posts covering our previous appearances (Gobblerfest 2014 and Gobblerfest 2013) that are worth reading.
We have many goals this year at Virginia Tech’s Gobblerfest. We plan to engage with students and invite them to join our grassroots movement for online voting! Here are a few of the items we will be sharing with students! Let us know what you think in the comment section and make sure to check our booth out if you’re in Blacksburg.
In preparation, we have designed a page on our site specifically for Hokies. Check out why we think Virginia Tech students should join our cause!
We will also be handing out these flyers! Pretty cool right?
At Follow My Vote, we believe that petitions are a strong force for effective change. Petitioning the SGA at Virginia Tech could be a huge stepping stone for online voting technology and put Virginia Tech on the map for being on the forefront of new technology in the voting industry.
