Loathe him or hate him, Trump has been voted out of office, despite his insistence that the election was rigged. I don’t know about most of the Kenyon population, but I’m stoked. I haven’t had serotonin levels this high since… well… who knows? To keep the happy chemicals coming, I’ve curated a playlist dedicated to bidding you-know-who an enthusiastic “good riddance!” I may have questionable music taste, at best, but the following songs are standouts as far as emulating the feeling of euphoria upon realizing we’ll be kicking him out of the White House in a few short months.Continue reading
WHAT: Your civic duty!
WHERE: Your local polling place. For those on campus, it’s the Gambier Community Center, 115 Meadow Lane (behind the KAC). More info for Kenyon students can be found here.
WHEN: GO GET IN LINE RIGHT NOW!!!!!!
WHY: Literally nothing else you do today could possibly be more important, not that paper, not that workout, not that dick appointment, nothing. If you see a child choking on the street, pick it up and do the Heimlich maneuver on your way to the polls because nothing. else. is more. urgent. VOTE!!!!
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.
Happy election day
Happy Election Day everyone. I woke up with my stomach hurting and I think this is just how it’s going to be forever now. You have one last chance to vote, and it’s time for you to prove to everyone that you’re capable of doing this very important task.
Here’s where you can vote:
