Make Your Voice Heard - Vote

by The Dartmouth Editorial Board | 4/11/95 5:00am

Today,students have a rare opportunity to affect change and to let their voices be heard. All undergraduates should vote in the student elections.

Students will elect the next Student Assembly president, vice president and general Assembly, as well as class officers and Committee on Standards representatives.

All campus voices must be heard. The Assembly is not only the best forum to address students' concerns, but is also the most effective organization to relate those concerns to the College administration. Students from every community at Dartmouth must participate in the election and make the Assembly a more legitimate body.

Furthermore, students should vote because they have an obligation to the greater Dartmouth community, of which everyone is a part. Apathy and indifference are not excuses.

Only 1,601 students turned out for last year's election, about 45 percent of the undergraduate population on campus. We hope more students will vote this year.

So today let your voice be heard and exercise the power of the ballot from 10:30 a.m. until 7:00 p.m. in Collis Common Ground.
