On Tuesday, November 8, Americans will cast their ballots to choose the next president of the United States, bringing to a close (hopefully) one of the most bizarre and contentious political contests in modern history, a race that has both confounded expectations and divided the nation.
No doubt that when the campaign is finally over and the votes are counted, there will be a lot of soul-searching by both Republicans and Democrats over the future of their parties.
But before we get there, we wanted to hear from students about who they’ve decided to support, how they arrived at their decision, and what their impressions are as the 2016 race for the White House draws to a end.
So, for this special edition of “YouSpeak,” we ask: Who are you voting for for president and why?
