A Sad Election Day

Election Day is among one of the most important foundations that America stands on. The problem is that not many people come out to perform their civic duty and vote. As high school student Andrew Uhring stated, some of the worst offenders are America’s youth: the college students. One might expect that this age group would be especially focused on who will be running their country in the next few years, but instead, they are busy studying and trying to find jobs. In State College, many students do not feel like it is their permanent home or duty to vote in local elections. Political Science major Andrew Uhring disagrees with these students and believes all elections, large or small, hold significance to each and every one of the students’ lives.
