Vox Pop: 10/19/12


Do you think it is important to vote in the upcoming Presidential election, and why?

Andy

Andy Jacobson: “I think it’s important to vote in the election if you really know what you are voting for.” Gunnar

Gunnar Johnson: “I think its important to vote in this election, but I’m not going to because I don’t believe in choosing the lesser of two evils, it’s a really shitty way to go about voting for your leader and if I can’t find one person I don’t actually believe in I’m not going to vote.”

kallia

Kallia Milillo: “I think that the system is a little bit outdated and there are a lot of people that fall in the margin in-between everything and though it’s always important to vote to show your voice, I feel like the options are not up to where they should be.”

Michou

Michou Tchana-Hyman: “I think it’s important because the president has a major influence on what happens in this country and because it is our right to choose who the president is, it is important to help make that decision.”

Sid

Sid Romero: “I find it to be important to vote because this system is democratic for a reason and even though we are just college students we still have a voice.”

Summer

Summer Carney: “Absolutely it’s important to vote for every election because whatever the president does directly affects us, such as Pell grant funding.”
