"I first registered to vote on my eighteenth birthday, which was an election year, and I was excited to vote for the first time. Now that all my family members are register to vote, we try to be the first to the polls on voting day. From walking in the door, to getting the “I VOTED” sticker, it takes less time than making ramen on the stovetop. I know who is on the ballot for President, but I also take the time to find out who is running in local races, such as school board, city government, county commissioners, and more. We can make the biggest impact in our local races." — Andrea, senior, majoring in mass communications (strategic communications)
“Act with Personal Integrity and Civic Responsibility” is one of the six dimensions of the Our Husky Compact at St. Cloud State University. We asked students to tell us why they are voting in this November’s election.
