The ability to vote is a right that many have bravely sought to secure. Voting is an integral part of having a voice on your campus. By deciding to become an active participant in a campus-wide election that directly impacts your student experience, you end up learning a lot about the power dynamics of a university’s democratic process. Also, by voting, you hold those who do run for office accountable, by selecting the candidate you believe can not only bring the best ideas to the campus but more importantly, who can follow through on them. The benefits of voting are countless!
