Fresno City College’s Associated Student Government (ASG) promotes voter rights in honor of Constitution Day to students with an information booth at Veterans Square on Sept. 15, 2023.

According to the U.S. Department of Education, Constitution Day celebrates the signing of the U.S. Constitution on Sept. 17, 1787.

The booth consisted of voter registration packets, QR codes for Constitution Day information, ASG information with applications, and free candy.

Jack Howard, Student Trustee of FCC’s ASG, participated in this booth to spread knowledge and encourage students to vote.

“Our ability to voice our opinions in a very objective way that leads to tangible results is important,” Howard said.

Howard is fortunate that everyone has the right to vote because it affects the environment we live in.

“Having those resources available to students free of charge is absolutely something we are pursuing and will continue to pursue,” Howard said.

Howard says ASG will continue to host this Constitution Day event into the next year.

Jesus Pulido Mejia, an FCC’s communication major did not engage with ASG’s booth but spoke about voting rights being taken for granted.

Mejia said ASG should keep promoting voter rights.

“There is never such a thing as too much information,” Mejia said.

Mejia believes that votes should be without bias.

“Because [your vote] is what you believe in and I think that is important,” Mejia said.

Myrna Reyes Gonzalez, an FCC nursing student, got a voter registration packet from the ASG booth because she wanted to know more about voting.

“I feel like not many people know about [voting] or they do not want to be involved, so they do not come here,” Gonzalez said.

Marco Hernandez, Business Manager
Marco Hernandez is a journalism-for-transfer student in Fresno City College. He is currently 21 years old and from Parlier, California. This is his second semester in The Rampage and is the Business Manager for the organization. He plans to transfer next semester to Fresno State and pursue a communications bachelor with a focus on advertising and public relations. In the past, he has always loved writing essays, no matter the topic, because as he mentions, "what you write on that essay is a reflection of yourself." He likes to go back and re-read his writing as it is an outlook on himself and finds areas that need improvement or admiration of his work. Marco finds much interest in video games. Since he was a kid playing Marvel Vs Capcom on the original PlayStation, video games became his favorite hobby and he aspires to be a journalist in that field because he wants to be apart of the industry that brought him much enjoyment. Some favorite video games of his are Marvel's Spider-Man, Metal Gear Solid V, and ABZÛ. A fact about Marco is that he was apart of the NJROTC Program in high school all four years, and finds irony attending the campus that holds one of his greatest advisories in his prior drill competitions. Some other facts is that he is a big music enthusiast about many various genres and artists, from Flying Lotus to Sun Ra, and loves superheroes because they were a form of inspiration for him ever since his brothers had shown him the 90's Spider-Man cartoon, and more so towards Sam Raimi's Spider-Man.
