That is the question… Actually, it’s not. Voting should be required in order to be a citizen. Voting is essential, especially for 2012. Whoever wins in November’s election will most likely dictate the future of college students today (and in years to come). Our futures are at stake, people. It’s our duty to make our vote count and let our voice be heard.

Over the month of October, you’re going to be seeing a lot of stuff pertaining to the election, especially from the candidates and their campaign teams. We here at CampusRiot know that it can become overwhelming at times, but I promise you that this is one of the most important elections of our time. The effect that it’ll have is crucial.

Because of all of this, I’ve been given the liberty to inform the student voters on important issues that pertain to them in this election.

Create this note to yourself: if you aren’t registered to vote yet, do so now. The government is making it easy for you:

Keeping this short and sweet, you don’t have much time left to register. Quite frankly, if you don’t vote, you don’t have a say in anything. It’s the easiest thing in the world! You don’t even have to get up from your desk in your dorm room, or your computer chair from home!

CampusRiot promotes you educating yourself, so over the next few weeks you’ll be seeing some non-biased, bi-partisan information from us on the candidates from both sides. We want you to make the decision for yourself. We believe that it’s important to vote for who you think is best overall.

Besides, who doesn’t want to vote for the leader of the nation? It’s kind of cool if you ask me.
