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.



I Will Peer Pressure You into Voting and Feel Absolutely No Remorse

via Discussionist

I could say a lot of things right now about why you should vote today instead of tomorrow. I could use clichés or guilt or song. I could list all the ways that not voting can and will hurt this election cycle. I honestly believe that most of us do want to vote, but the heavy weight of apathy often wins. We don’t want to look up the schedule, and we don’t have time to find a ride.

I won’t be the first or only one to state the blatant fact that the infrastructure and resources at Kenyon are limited. We are often met with power outages, boil alerts, and long lines in Peirce. It should come as no surprise that historically, Gambier’s voting accommodations are no different.

Last Day to Early Vote!

For everyone registered to vote in Ohio, today is the last day to early vote. If you have yet to vote, get yourself to the polls now and avoid the long lines that are likely tomorrow. You can vote today at the Knox County Board of Elections from 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. To cast your ballot, you must have the last four digits of your Social Security Number and the copy of your utility bill that was emailed to you in September by Also, check out this handy Voter Guide that the Collegian compiled. Nifty!

Do it today: Vote Early!

Attention, voters — TODAY (Oct. 9) is the deadline to register to vote in Ohio. If you’re not registered yet, don’t panic: Kenyon is sponsoring a free, nonpartisan shuttle service to the Knox County Board of Elections, where you can both register to vote and vote early. The shuttles will run continuously from 9:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m., leaving from the Peirce parking lot. No matter who you’re voting for, it makes sense to vote early: you only need a printout of your utility bill and the last four digits of your Social Security number, you can iron out any potential kinks well before Election Day, and you’ll avoid long lines like the ones that kept Kenyon voters at the polls all night in 2004. Today’s the day — the polls are open late, the shuttles are running all day and evening and the whole process will only take about an hour, so get out there and vote!

  • What: Free shuttle service to vote early
  • Where: Peirce parking lot (the one between Peirce and the Horn Gallery —  look for the balloons!)
  • When: Running continuously from 9:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m.
