College Republicans is to help educate young voters on why they might be Republicans. Many young voters might say, "I am a republican because that is how I was raised" or "my parents vote Republican, therefore I am one." Those reasons are okay but the purpose of this organization would be to help educate young voters on the policies that their candidates want to put in place and the platforms that they run on. This organization is set out 10 show that the decisions made by the people in Washington D.C. directly affect them and it is important that they vote and understand who and what they are voting for. College Republicans will set out to help young voters on campus find their political identity so that they know exactly why they vote for the party the vote for and they know exactly what policies they vote on and why they vote for them.
