Democratic attorney general candidate Sam Houston is among the guests who will speak at the Bearkat Democrats’ “Rock the Vote” event today.
Located at the Old Main Pit between 4 p.m. and 6 p.m., the event is a final push to rally voters to the polls before Election Day on Tuesday. Voters will then march together to the Walker County Annex to cast their vote.
Along with Houston, three other candidates will speak at the event, including Huntsville city council at-large position 4 candidate Kendall Scudder, Walker County Pct. 4 justice of the peace candidate Cade Reece and Texas railroad commissioner candidate Steve Brown.
“We are really looking forward to the candidates coming,” Bearkat Democrats treasurer Heather Robbins said.
According to Robbins, the last time the Bearkat Democrats held an event, they believed the turnout was a success and hope to continue that trend again today.
At the event, there will be free food including pizza, popcorn and drinks, as well as live music performed by local musician Mary Brett.
“Anyone and everyone is welcome to come, and we are looking forward to a big turnout,” Robbins said.
Although the Sam Houston State University College Republicans are not throwing an event of their own, the group has been tabling on campus every week and are currently working with Turning Point USA on a 10-week long activism project.
Every Thursday, the College Republicans have been in the mall area getting students registered to vote and discussing the issues in the country.
