State University's campus in Raleight, N.C.. Vallas, who has voted in every small and major election since coming to the country from Greece in 1924, also wanted to sport a paper mustache. The group was distributing on the first day of early voting. In addition, they were hoping to get a one-day goal of 4,000 students willing to pledge to vote across 5 state campuses. Their longer-term goal is to get 100,000 student pledges before the November national election by continuing to being present on campuses.
