Crisis in student voting

After reading this article, I believe that this author has gotten the student body attention about the crisis in student voting. The author states that a little over nine thousand students voted from a university that generally enrolls fifty thousand students a year. That’s relatively higher than the two primary republican turnouts. However in certain precincts that are heavily dominated with university student did not vote and the actual number of students that voted is closer to two thousand. The author suggests that maybe they should change their election days so it wouldn’t conflict with other election days. Student voting is an important thing for the university and the future of politics it helps student learn about elections and voting and help them vote in the future for more important elections than student government. This article was published in March of 2010 by Michael Hurta a senior editor with The Burnt Orange Report
