Increase Millennial Voters' Participation, KPU Surabaya Socializes STIE Perbanas Surabaya Students
Chairman of STIE Perbanas Surabaya, Dr. Yudi Sutarso, S.E., M.Sc., expressed his gratitude for being able to participate in providing democratic education to students on campus. His party also appreciated the concept of socialization which was packaged in the form of an Election Photography Exhibition by WAFOS friends. "Photography I think is very interesting for all of us." So, with this photo we can discuss many things about the implementation of the General Election, "he impressed.
Meanwhile, the Commissioner for KPU Surabaya, Division of Socialization, Voter Education, Community Participation, and Human Resources, Subairi, S.Pd., said election socialization had been allocated up to 110 points in the city of Surabaya. The target is also aimed at various communities, including first-time voters. "The goal, we want to provide information about the Surabaya Pilwali has been in stages. Today, it has entered the stage of individual nomination, followed by PPK and PPS recruitment which will take place in January 2020, "he explained.
He explained that the activities taking place at STIE Perbanas Surabaya are currently one of the socializations to the public. Apart from that, the socialization activities were also packaged in the form of cultural arts degrees, quiz competitions, murals, seminars, and so on. Subairi also emphasized this because the percentage of first-time voters is relatively high. This situation makes it necessary for the agency to continue campaigning and socializing the election to novice or millennial voters. "They seem to be ignorant, therefore with this socialization they hope to be inspired. In the future, the participation can increase, "he hoped.
STIE Perbanas Surabaya student, Athala Asyifanaya admitted that the socialization event held by WAFOS was very interesting and useful. According to him, the information conveyed was very useful for young voters. "Because many new voters don't know how to vote at first. And, we know which areas that have been punched are scorched or not, "he said.
It is known, this event is increasingly attracting enthusiasm from students because it is packed with Photo Exhibition and Election Journalism Workshop activities. The students were also interested in a number of photos that were considered funny because the voting organizers were dressed in a superhero atmosphere. (eko/humas)
