Hey. Look. Y’all knew this was coming. Tomorrow is Election Day. It’s important, and you’re gonna do this. I’m not arguing with you. I don’t care if both parties suck, I don’t care if you think it doesn’t really change anything, and I don’t care if you think that voting is a means of diverting the political and mental resources of the proletariat into dead-end politics instead of a worker’s revolution. I. DON’T. CARE. It’s voting time, and if you’re not doing it you’re AN ASSHOLE!

So. Here’s how to do it. You can early vote today if you so wish, from 8am to 2pm. The KAT shuttle will stop at the bookstore and Peirce, and bring you to Mount Vernon’s town square, very close to the Board of Elections.

On Election Day tomorrow, there will also be voting at the Gambier Community Center (where the Rummage Sale is!), and a shuttle will be running there all day from the bookstore. There will also be a March to the Polls at 11:10am in front of Peirce, where Kenyon students will march in droves to the Community Center to vote.

Here are the candidates on the ballot. You’re gonna need a valid ID (driver’s license, you know), the last four digits of your Social Security number, and proof of address (which was emailed to y’all. Just look up “Your Voter ID” and it’ll show up in your inbox).

Do it! Go VOTE.

Obituary for Olin-Chalmers

Even in this brochure ready picture of our dear Mother, someone hasn’t put a Peirce cup away.

 

Olin-Chalmers Memorial Library, 32, First Bae and Queen Mother, was destroyed this year in October 2018. Olin was erected in 1986, where it remained a weird “it’s two libraries in one building” hybrid for over three decades.

I Have No Lib and I Must Read

As a senior, I can’t help but see Olin’s destruction as symbolic of something.

 

I’m like you. Don’t worry, not entirely, but like you, I miss the library. I find the mods frustrating, and frankly, I don’t understand where our books are. I have questions, and I’m sure you do too. Where are our books? Why can’t I see them? Will I ever read again? How can I get books on this campus?
