Dr. Benjamin Rush founded Dickinson
College with a grand, yet pragmatic goal: He hoped to prepare
promising students to become leaders in the newly chartered United
States. This was a tall order in 1783 America, a fledgling nation
in the wake of the Revolutionary War. Bold revolutionaries such as
Rush, a signer of the Declaration of Independence, and John
Dickinson, a signer of the United States Constitution, laid the
foundation for the new democracy; the next generation of Americans
would need to further these democratic ideals in the New World.
Dickinson College was founded to meet this noble goal.
200 years later, you have the opportunity to show your revolutionary
spirit and demonstrate your commitment to democratic ideals through one
very simple but important task: VOTING. Below are resources to assist
you in registering to vote in your home state or in Pennsylvania.
