We asked Temple students if they’re registered to vote

Millennials DO care about this election

Tomorrow is the last day to register to vote, so if you haven’t gotten on board yet, register ASAP! Whether or not you think this election is a joke, it’s important to remember our vote matters and could make a difference come November.

During the past couple weeks, Temple students have seen tables throughout the campus, with people encouraging others to register to vote. I’m registered to vote because it’s my right and to show that us millennials, do in fact, care more about this election than some people may think.

The Tab Temple asked some students around campus if they have registered to vote and why they are voting on November 8th. Here’s what they had to say.

Megan Horensky, Junior, Nursing

“I decided to vote because I’m tired of people saying ‘it doesn’t matter they’re both terrible’. I get to choose who I want and my opinion matters.”

Dave Lavin, Sophomore, Physics with teaching

unnamed“I’m voting for Jill Stein and I’m voting because its the only voice our overlords pretend to listen to.”

Riley Zerman, Junior, Business

“I am registered to vote and I just want to be able to have a say and participate in this presidential election.”

Vince Bellino, Senior, Journalism

“I’m voting because I think it’s important to stand against people who act like Donald Trump, even if I don’t necessarily agree with the other candidates. It’s also a way to voice which politicians at other levels I’ve felt did a good or bad job.”

Rachel Dundorf, Sophomore, Psychology

“I am registered to vote and I am voting because there’s no reason not to. People see not voting as an act of rebellion, but that doesn’t make an impact or change anything. What’s the point of living in a democracy if you aren’t going to vote?”
