It’s never too late to go vote

Democratic candidate Ben Chandler was scheduled to be at the Waffle House here in Bowling Green, while Republican Ernie Fletcher rubbed elbows with President George W. Bush in Paducah Saturday in the final hours of the crucial race to be the Bluegrass’ next leader.

Who you choose to support is irrelevant. What is important is that you at least cast a vote. Sadly, the traditional college student in Kentucky is poorly represented on Election Day.

There is already considerable apathy among older Americans. College-age students represent a large part of the state’s population and have the ability to seriously rock the vote.

The decisions that will be made by whoever is elected will affect college-age students in a huge way over the next four years. It only makes sense for the affected to affect a process that has that kind of power.

In the time it took you to read this editorial you could have cast a vote. So do it already. GO VOTE.
