The Thomas B. Murphy Center for Public Service is a non-partisan, educational and public service organization at the University of West Georgia that promotes student and citizen involvement in the community and government. The Murphy Center for Public Service supports civic education by sponsoring a broad range of events that encourage public awareness and participation in the governing process in keeping with the ideals of former Speaker of the Georgia House of Representatives Thomas B. Murphy.
The Murphy Center for Public Service partnered with the Carrollton/Carroll County League of Women Voters, and the UWG Political Science Club to conduct its annual voter registration drive on the University of West Georgia campus. Several student volunteers from the Department of Political Science and Planning received training on how to complete the voter registration forms and then set up registration tables on campus. Department secretary Brenda McCrary, who collected the complete voter registrations forms and transported them to the county office, said that drive was very successful and many first-time and relocated voters were able to register.
