While we are a non-partisan college, we believe all citizens have a right to easy voting access in accordance with American ideals of one person, one vote. Some states have put into practice many voting impediments for the average citizen, some of which are presently being challenging in the U.S. Supreme Court.

Questions may be directed to Mila P. Cooper, Executive Director of the Coretta Scott King Center, at or (937) 319-0123.
