(SAN MARCOS)- Texas State Students are ready to vote for the candidate that best represents their beliefs, ideals and opportunities for their future in today’s elections.
Students who did not vote in the primaries are making time to vote for their candidate before election polls close at 7 p.m.
Though many students did not want to say who they were voting for, other students shared their thoughts about their vote and the candidate they were voting for.
“I’ll vote for Hilary,” said a senior psychology student. “She supports women’s rights, affordable healthcare and animal rights.”
In the other hand, Jason Nguyen, a junior student at Texas State, said he would vote for the Republican candidate Donald Trump.
“Hillary appears to change what she says depending on crowds,” he said. “I don’t really trust her.”
Luis Portilla, a 19-year-old sophomore voting for Gary Johnson, talked about how Johnson’s economy plan influenced in his decision.
“His plans were a little better than Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton,” said Portilla. “They would pose a downturn for U.S. economy.”
In contrast with Portilla, other students find in Johnson a chance to fight the two-party system in this election.
“I would vote for Johnson,” said Benjamin Vineyard, a senior student in computer science. “I don’t even like him, but that isn’t the goal; the goal is to discourage the current two-party system.”
Overall, students will exercise their right to vote to make their voices and opinions count.
