Thirteen percent of CSU’s student population is approximately

3,100 students. That is how many students, historically, decide who

is the next student body president.

For the next two weeks, students will be bombarded with flyers,

stickers, T-shirts, candy, flowers and other goodies from

candidates trying to win this year’s Associated Students of CSU

elections.

We encourage students to vote, but vote on issues and not on

names or the goodies given to them. Voting should become a habit

for all young people.

Attend the scheduled debates, visit the candidates’ Web sites,

read their platforms, find out which tickets speak about issues you

care about. Want computer labs opened longer? Find out which

candidate is working to make sure that happens. Want wind power in

the residence halls? Seek out the ticket that will work with the

administration to make that happen.

This is your student government. You pay their salaries. They

spend some of your student fees. Make the effort and vote on RAMweb

April 5 to 7.

This should start the habit for this upcoming November.
