Using Your Voice

With a line sometimes stretching out the door of the Tate Center last week, students and UGA community members cast votes in local and statewide elections, and many will do so in their local polling locations today. It is a wonderful democratic scene. For some, this is a first time voting. For us all, it is a chance to have a say in the leadership and future of our communities.
 
While I am thrilled about having a campus advance polling location, we all need to remember that our civic responsibility does not end in the voting booth. I frequently encourage students to use their voices and be heard throughout the year on the important topics we face. Our campus and the local community provide countless spaces to have and model meaningful dialogue on a full range of issues. These exchanges are critical. I am not overly idealistic, as I know we will not all agree. Yet only through dialogue and continuing to come together may we move toward the campus and world we want to see. If not us, then who?
