The Student Government Association unanimously passed a resolution at its Tuesday meeting to recommend that the student body of Western vote in the election on Nov. 4.
Bowling Green sophomore Robert Watkins, an SGA member and author of the legislation, made a motion to suspend the by-laws so the resolution could be passed before the vote.
The resolution recommends that students not only vote, but research the candidates to make sure that they reflect their interests and values.
The resolution states that students could better choose a candidate who will support higher education if they research.
