Hundreds of students at Baruch College registered to vote Tuesday.

The student government at the school held a voter registration rally and invited all CUNY students to attend.

The rally included musical performances as well as information about candidates in the upcoming election.

Students who registered said they are excited to have a voice in politics.

"I think that choosing the right person is really important, and I find that my vote will make a difference," said one voter.

"It's something I've never done before, and I'm taking matters kind of into my own hands," said another.

"A sense of pride knowing that I have an effect on who's going to be the next leader of New York City," said a third.

Students who registered Tuesday won't be able to vote in the primary next week, but they are eligible to vote in the general election.
