Launch of Voter Registration Program for Students.
August 25th, 2021
Pursuant to the #OneMillionCampaign volunteers program previously launched by our Youth
Assembly, the MDC Alliance Students’ Council today launches the #StudentsForChangeZW
This initiative serves to mobilize students in all tertiary institutions within the
parameters of the borders of our country to register to vote.
Students are the torchbearers of every national democratic agenda; to achieve and even surpass
the one million first time voters’ target, we have seen it worth to put students at the forefront
of this democratic exercise of registering to vote. Through this campaign running under the
harsh tag #StudentsForChangeZW, the MDC Alliance Students’ Council plans to register to
vote more than 100 000 students across the nation. The campaign will be in motion from
September 2021 when students begin their new semester until July 2023, when the nation will
once again go to the polls.
Other than volunteers for mobilizing students to register to vote, we also seek volunteers to
provide transportation to ferry students from their institutions to the Zimbabwe Electoral
Commission District Offices where they will register to vote.
Transportation will also be needed to take them back to their institutions after registration. We also welcome those who would like to provide voter and civic education, help us source regalia and even lunch for
students during this exercise.
Zimbabwe – Your Responsibility, My Responsibility, Our Responsibility!
