MIDDLESEX COUNTY - New Jersey Secretary of State Tahesha Way was at Middlesex County College in Edison on Constitution Day – Sept. 17 – for Mobilize MCC, an event to encourage students to register to vote and participate in the 2020 Census.

The rally included a visit from the Passaic County Community College Panther, as well as speeches from Secretary Way, Middlesex County Freeholder Director Ronald Rios and College President Mark McCormick.

Her visit kicked off Ballot Bowl, a contest among New Jersey Colleges to see who could register the most new voters.

“When I look at this group gathered here, I see many current and future community leaders who will make an impact in the lives of so many,” said Rios, who also put out a call to action to students to vote in elections, advocate for issues they are passionate about and volunteer in their communities.
