Get Out The Vote groups are stationed around Temple University’s main campus in Philadelphia

Photos 1 and 2: Outside of the Howard Gittis Student Center, members of Temple Student Government encourage others to vote with signs to remind the student body it is Election Day.

At the center of campus, Mario Rico-Meza works with PennPIRG, a non-partisan democratic advocacy group, to help students find their polling places. Rico-Meza said PennPIRG’s voter registration efforts signed up 3,500 Temple students.

According to exit polls issued by national media outlets, the youth share of the electorate increased to 19 percent in 2012 over 18 percent in 2008.
