After crisscrossing Washington state this week, Secretary Wyman has finished her first College Civics tour. During the 14-campus tour that began in mid-April, Wyman talked with students about the importance and power of voting and how to become involved on campus and in the community.

Wyman said student-developed events were “amazing … and a lot of fun for everyone.  I am so impressed with the quality and the creativity of our millennials! This next generation of leaders is going to be outstanding.”

Elections Division staffers who accompanied Wyman dubbed it the “Lots of Smiles Tour,” as you can tell by just looking at these photos.
