With New Hampshire's presidential race predicted to be a dead heat, students grappled with the question of whether to vote in Hanover or in their home states. For many students from Florida, though, the decision was made for them when their state failed to send the absentee ballots soon enough.

Over 5,000 voters cast their ballots in Hanover's energetic Election Day atmosphere Tuesday. Normal sleep schedules stood interrupted while eager students showed up in droves -- by 10 a.m., when many Dartmouth classes commence, 2,000 votes had already been placed.
WASHINGTON -- President Bush won a second term from a divided and anxious nation, his promise of steady, strong wartime leadership trumping John Kerry's fresh-start approach to Iraq and joblessness. After a long, tense night of vote counting, the Democrat called Bush Wednesday to concede Ohio and the presidency, The Associated Press learned.
Campaign trail theme songs are nothing new. Celebrity artists were even making a splash back in 1960, when Sinatra himself provided JFK with the tune "High Hopes." Today, Bruce Springsteen -- the politically-conscious "Boss" who famously refused Ronald Reagan the right to use "Born in the U.S.A." on his campaign -- is providing Kerry with the trail theme "No Surrender." And who could possibly forget Al Gore using Paul Simon's "You Can Call Me Al" on his 1992 campaign for veep?
While the rest of the campus was busy rounding up freshmen for the bonfire, No. 2 Dartmouth women's hockey burned Boston College in a convincing 7-1 victory in Thompson Arena on Friday night to open up its regular season.
Leading up to Saturday's season-opening game against Quinnipiac University was the hype triggered by a national ranking of 11, the distinct prospect of an NCAA tournament berth and the optimism and hopes of an entire region. Unfortunately for Dartmouth men's hockey, missed opportunities and a strong defensive effort from Quinnipiac spelled defeat with a 2-1 score on opening night. But Dartmouth rebounded in a big way Sunday versus UConn in a 4-1 victory, hopefully laying to rest any doubt that the 2004-2005 squad is not for real.

It's Nov. 2 -- Get Up and Vote
Oct. 25, South Main Street, 6:56 p.m.
Vintage belts, earrings and home spa products led to an informal discussion Monday at the Tuck School of Business on how Dartmouth students can launch their own businesses. Lisa Porter Kable '90 and Lisa Salzer '04 addressed students, mostly women, about their experiences starting companies and advised their audience on how to establish themselves in the business world.
Police activity over Homecoming weekend declined slightly from recent years, with Hanover Police reporting 16 arrests and four protective custody cases between Friday evening and Sunday morning. Five of these arrests were related to Friday's bonfire festivities.
A poll released in New Hampshire Monday shows Massachusetts Sen. John Kerry and President Bush locked in a near dead heat as voters head to the polls.
Right down to Election Day, the question for many student voters who have yet to register in New Hampshire is not whom they will vote for, but whether or not they should vote in the state at all.
Former Vermont Gov. Howard Dean blasted Republican candidates for focusing their campaigns on "guns, God, gays and abortion," instead of issues such as the economy, lost jobs, healthcare and public education Monday at the Hopkins Center.
The pre-release buzz surrounding Jamie Foxx's performance in "Ray" was deafening, and indeed, the "In Living Color" star more than lives up to the hype. Foxx is an absolute shoo-in for an Oscar nomination, and it should surprise no one if he wins the whole thing come February. I had remained unconvinced of Foxx's talents even after his laudable turn in "Collateral" this summer, but I can no longer justify such skepticism. The man can act, pure and simple, and if he never does anything worthwhile ever again, he can at least be proud of his accomplishment here.
Not to be an alarmist, but the day of reckoning might finally be upon us. And I'm not just saying this because the Red Sox won the World Series, though that's definitely part of it. More importantly though, while we've all been enjoying Homecoming revelries, a lot of wacky things have been happening in the realm of domestic politics: Provisional ballots may or may not be counted in Ohio, people don't know where to vote in Florida, voter registration forms of Democrats have been supposedly destroyed across the country and new digital voting mechanisms will leave no paper trail. With such a plethora of dubious aspects, this election has the potential to cause quite a bit of turmoil in the country. It seems unlikely that -- barring a surprise landslide victory -- a winner will emerge on the night of Nov. 2, or perhaps even within the week of Nov. 2. Simply and unfortunately, the nation is on a collision course with chaos.
Republicans often argue that Dartmouth students should not be allowed to vote in New Hampshire because they have little knowledge about local issues and are not really New Hampshire residents. They're half right.
Flanked by a "Dartmouth 2004" banner, Stephanie Feldman '04 and Lauren Talbot '04 floated weightlessly on board NASA's microgravity plane in the opening slide of their presentation "A Weightless Wonder: Our Foray into Microgravity" in Spannos Auditorium at the Thayer School of Engineering on Sunday.
