The HWS Votes! campaign was featured in the Sept. 30 Democrat and Chronicle article “College students urged to vote.”
“Lower college-age turnout on Election Day is likely due in part to the fact college students remain somewhat insulated from such realities as taxes and health care,” said Jane Erickson '07, who is heading the HWS Votes campaign. “Most of us are still being supported by our parents.”
However, one goal of the Hobart and William Smith campaign is to illustrate why the election matters, said Erickson.
Katie Maloney '07, who registered to vote during the HWS Votes campaign, said registering was easy. “It's kind of strange that it's so basic. It almost feels like it's too easy.”
