Transcript REPlM-YCANS Get Out the Votes: Student Voice Important in Elections m. . J PLATFORM STORY Republicans look through literature of candidates. Photo hy Pete Medrano DRUMMING VOTES Candidates meet with local Republicans to discuss issues concerning Houstonians, Photo hy Pete Medrano SHOWING SUPPORT College Republicans listen to the candidate speakers. Photo hy Pete Medrano Year 2000 is not simply the turn of a millennium, for the College Republicans and all politicians, it is much more. It is an election year. With thousands of potential voters, campuses such as the University of Houston are a vital base to winning at state and national level elections. The College Republicans are waiting to use this to their advantage. "Now that the primaries are over we will promote the republican ticket," Benjamin Jones, President of the College Republicans said. With a Texas Republican running for the highest office in the country, the excitement of this group is extremely high. The society hopes to hold several Anti-Gore rallies, as well as have several rallies in favor of George W. Bush and campaign heavily for state republicans. The purpose of this society is to promote the conservative message throughout the University. Despite many people thinking that conservative ideology and college students do not mix, at UHthe theory is proven wrong. "A lot of media promote the idea that college students are really liberal, so conservative students do not know where to look. We came into fill that gap," says Jones. The society was re-established after a lapse of two years in 1997 at University and now has a permanent membership of 75 students, with an ever- increasing group of volunteers. The memberships reflects the diversity of Houston. The society has a number of international students as members. "This diversity really helps us a lot," Jones added. One of the biggest problems that the College Republicans face is that most young people do not vote. This problem is being addressed by having three voter registration drives per semester. "We realize that getting students to vote is a real problem, but the more they learn about the election, the more excited they get, " Jones said. He predicts this year the youth voter turn will increase because of the tight race. Only time will tell if the prediction comes true. • by Ronnate Asirwatham VOTE FOR LEITNER Congressman Leitner talks with student Republicans regarding his election platform and important issues facing the Republican party.
