Norm the Niner spurs voters before spring break

As part of the University's UNC Charlotte Votes campaign, Charlotte 49ers mascot Norm the Niner starred at the "before spring break" early voting kick-off event at the Student Union. 

Norm helped encourage students to vote now for the March 15 ballot that includes the presidential primary and the important Connect NC bond initiative. Hundreds of students participated in the event and dozens took advantage of shuttles to actually exercise their right to vote -- before heading out for spring break. For many of these students, this is their first presidential primary AND their first time to vote. 

The UNC Charlotte Votes campaign is the latest program growing out of UNC Charlotte's 2012 49er Democracy Experience.
