Students in Final Push to Get Out the Vote

In the final days leading up to the election, students on campus with both the Romney and Obama campaigns are working hard in their final get-out-the-vote efforts. Will Staal has been volunteering with the Romney campaign since August. The MSU junior said he got involved because the implications of the this election couldn’t be greater. “For people, especially my age, we’ve had enough time of sitting on the sidelines and letting people in Washington make our decisions” Staal said. “I just wanted to stand up and fight for a cause I believe in.”
