Our View: Get out to the polls

With this year’s election as one of the more contestive elections in recent history, there’s been a lot of speculation about which candidate will win each state. Some have been more expected, while others have not. The increasing use of technology for campaigning has made voters more in touch with what candidates stand for, so there is the possibility of a more-informed decision.

Really, with the availability of information and easier ways to register, we’re telling you all to go out and vote on Tuesday. For those who don’t know, that is the highly anticipated Ohio primary.

An intense race is also bringing about an intense voter turnout. In one instance, Michigan’s turnout for the primary this past Tuesday was so overwhelming, some precincts ran out of Democratic ballots.

College campuses are especially a great forum for political discussion and involvement. Even if that doesn’t seem interesting, you at least get an “I (Ohio) Voting” sticker out of it.

Even if you aren’t registered with any party, you’re still able to request your preferred party’s ballot once you arrive at the polls. The only catch is that you need to be registered to vote.

So get out, get your ballot and vote to either keep your favorite candidate in the running, or even keep a terrifying one from running. And get that sticker.
