Editor’s Note: Make your voice heard
The Louisville Cardinal is not endorsing any candidate in this year’s election.
Our staff, like our university, is one with diverse political views. For this reason, the only thing we endorse this election is making your voice heard.
As the candidate questionnaires and Op-Eds held in this issue show, the candidates this year offer very different choices on issues like raising the minimum wage, student debt relief, tax reform and much more.
Our generation will be affected by the decisions made in Washington about these issues.
This election season has been negative, and 77 percent of Americans view Congress unfavorably, according to an ABC News/Washington Post poll.
This statistic could inspire apathy among young voters, but it should give you even more reason to exercise your right to vote.
We believe that college students should take advantage of the opportunity to make a difference through the ballot box.
So no matter who you decide to support – Mitch McConnell, Alison Lundergan Grimes or David Patterson – make sure you get out and vote.
