Dear college students: My grandmother waited 70 years for the right to vote. Don’t ignore this chance.
Many people don’t believe you are going to get out to the polls because in the last election, many college students didn’t. I believe you will speak up and vote.
I come from a family where the choice to speak or to be silent could be a matter of life or death.
