It is time for hot chocolate. It is time for jackets. It is time for freezing temperatures.
With winter weather arriving in Abilene this past weekend, the changing seasons have been on everyones mind. But, along with the weather, it is also election season.
It is time to vote.
This years election proves to be one of the most important in our campus’ history. The result could drastically alter the landscape of our nation. And you have the power to make a difference.
As for the candidates, primary election results revealed in chapel last week have narrowed down the field.
Of those selected, the last four years have been filled with drastic changes. It seems like when we first met them they were children, fresh out of high school.
They have many similarities but some lean “red” and others “blue.” Also “yellow” and a bit of “pink and green.”
You may not really know any of the candidates or you may be best friends with a few of them. Whatever your relation, it is clear they are all great people. And not to mention beautiful.
But don’t let it become a popularity contest. What it really comes down to is the issues.
However, it can also be difficult to determine where the candidates stand. Over the summer we saw a lot of flip flops and certain clubs may try to sway the facts and convince you to vote one way or the other.
Either way, these ladies will flash their pearly whites and try to win over your vote.
They are all deserving though. Whomever is crowned at the end of the election will surely have earned their homecoming.
We’ve seen clean campaigns from everyone this year. Hopefully the election will go just as smoothly and the best woman will win.
All that’s left is for students to vote.
Homecoming Queen votes can be cast online at www.acu.edu/queen from now until Friday Oct. 12 at 5 p.m.
It is your duty, as a student, to participate in the politics of this great college. So get to know the candidates and I’ll see you at the polling place for the most important election of your lifetime.
