LETTER TO THE EDITOR | To the Disengaged: Voting Is Necessary

After I was first sworn in as the brand new Director of Elections for the Scholar Meeting, I inherited a roughly 15 p.c voter turnout charge and a campus which was — practically fully — politically disengaged with Cornell scholar authorities. I do know this as a result of I used to be one in every of these college students.

I didn’t vote within the fall Scholar Meeting elections, and on the time, I felt fully bored and infrequently irritated with the method which included being bombarded with emails and posters throughout campus. My thought course of was easy: The Scholar Meeting, in my opinion, was an establishment with no actual energy. I noticed it as a playground for college students who wished to pad their resume and play mock authorities. Why would I interact in such a system? Why ought to I even care about it?

As my first semester at Cornell got here to an in depth, I got here to the identical realization that many others throughout campus felt — that my unique notion was the furthest factor from the reality. The Scholar Meeting holds actual political energy on the College stage, and as somebody who has a ardour for shared governance and scholar empowerment, I felt that I needed to get entangled to make a change to this inaccurate and dangerous assumption.
