With less than two months until the election, one Michigan State University student says he plans to vote, but a lack of pressure and motivation have stopped him from going through the registration process. Blake Isaacs, a 21-year-old James Madison College senior majoring in political theory and constitutional democracy from Farmington Hills, Mich., says he’ll probably register to vote in the coming weeks. “Getting off the couch to ensure I’m registered is something I plan on doing,” said Isaacs. “But still, in reality, if I don’t vote, it isn’t going to make a difference. Now, if everyone has that mindset, that’s a problem.”
Working his way through school by maintaining Newby Teas of London’s online store and MSU Hillel, Isaacs says time and motivation are what have stopped him from ever registering.
