It's your last chance to vote
By Thunderworld Staff
Today is your last chance to cast your vote.
No, you didn't miss a ballot in your mailbox, it's time to vote for Highline's new Student Government president and vice president.
This is the time when the student body will be choosing the people they want to represent them.
If you don't vote, you are losing the opportunity to have a say in the students that will be making decisions and recommendations on your behalf.
The winning candidates will represent students on multiple campus-wide committees. And they also play a role in deciding how student fees will be allocated for various activities.
Just like any other election, the candidates run on a platform, with goals they wish to achieve during their time in office.
And just like any election, it is important to read the voter information and learn what their platform is.
If you don't read the voter information, then you are passing up the opportunity to vote for a candidate that represents you as a student.
You can find a voter table in the Student Union Building on the second floor. You will be able to read over the candidate's statements here before casting your vote.
But Highline makes it even easier than that.
If you want to vote right from your computer or smartphone from anywhere, you can.
All you have to do is visit highline.edu/event/elections-2017. From here, you'll see a "vote now" button which will take you to a login page.
Once you've logged in, you can click on the candidate's name to read about their goals as the next president or vice president.
There are two choices for both president and vice president this year.
It's as simple as that, so don't give up your vote.
