Breaking: Weshop is giving away free cookies to anyone who voted today. Hurry the fuck up.
Wesleying staffers went down to the polls today to vote, where we met this Wes kid this one, this one, and this one. Voting could feel patriotic, empowering, historically significant, insignificant, a hassle, exciting, responsible and important. Go find out! Our exit poll data hasn’t yet confirmed whether or not 14% of students are putting their money where their mouth is and voting Giant Joint, but we’ll keep you posted when we find out.
Middletown polls are open until 8. Unlike Red & Black, we won’t give you a free coffee if you send us a picture of you holding your “I Voted” sticker, but we might just post it. In the meantime, results will be pouring in tonight, and there are screening parties planned in Usdan and Woodhead Lounge. We’ll be liveblogging the action. For a taste of what tonight might look like, here’s this. Click past the jump for interviews with Wesleyan voters.
Here are some audio interviews with WesKids:
Polls close at 8:00pm, although you will still be able to vote if you are in line by that time. If you live in La Casa, Interfaith House, Full House, Writing House, or the Park Washington apartments, you’ll vote at the Macdonough School at 66 Spring Street. All other students will vote at the Senior Center at 150 Williams Street by Broad Street Books. Bring ID (student or state ID will suffice).
