Why I Vote
Junior, Environmental Studies and Planning
I'm voting because it's a privilege.
I'm voting because who becomes president effects everyone.
Senior, Communications/Environmental Studies and Planning
I'm voting because I remember what got us into this mess.
Junior (returning student), Environmental Studies and Planning
I always vote. There are far too many issues on each ballot to let slide. City, county, and state measures are as important as the presidential election, and have a greater impact in my day-to-day life.
I'm voting because too many students our age do not.
Graduate Student-Second Year, School of Education
I always vote. It's a privilege and a responsibility. I believe each vote does matter. I also believe the two party system is broken and that we as a country need to embrace and be able to choose from more than just the two party viewpoints.
Junior, Studio Art
I'm voting because I care about our nations’ future.
Junior, Criminal Justice

Kirsten Marie Laforga
I'm voting for our future. Especially my own because I believe in equality for all.
