The Gamma Chi Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Inc. has been organizing voter registration exercises on Claflin campus.

The registration, which started Sept. 18, is geared toward Claflin students who are South Carolina residents who have not registered to vote yet.

“Over 52-100 students have registered so far,” Malahah Walker said. She is the historian as well as the political chair for the chapter.

“Registration is still ongoing,” Walker said.

Students from out of state can register if they have a South Carolina ID and use the school address, Walker said.

She said registration is a lot of work, so the sorority is trying to get other organizations on board.

“The reason why students should register is because our ancestors fought for it, so it’s kind of vain if you don’t do it. Pay them some respect by voting and exercising your rights,” Walker said.
