Vox Pop: 10/19/12

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


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Kallia Milillo: “I think that the system is a little bit outdated and there are a lot of people that fall in the margin in-between everything and though it’s always important to vote to show your voice, I feel like the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 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 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 Carney: “Absolutely it’s important to vote for every election because whatever the president does directly affects us, such as Pell grant funding.”
