What did journalism students do during the election?
November 4, 2020
Election Day is both an exciting and stressful time for many as Americans wait with bated breath to see who the next president of the United States will be. Journalism students shared what they did on this Election Day.
Some students were more interested in the voters than the candidates.
“My mom works at the library and is therefore managing a ballot drop-off location. I’m sure I’ll be receiving constant updates from her and all the people she encounters today!” Kylie Schwartz said.
Others are spending this time with friends and family.
Kaya Simcoe explained, “I am reading before to keep calm, and my dad’s friend is coming over to watch it in our backyard! We’re going to get Thai food probably and I’m going to dress in warm cozy layers and sit outside.”
A few students had some plans before the polls closed as well.
“My friend and I went to a relaxing lunch before tonight’s predicted craziness started!” said Skylar Martin.
Distracting oneself, however, was a very popular choice.
“I’ve been playing Minecraft 24/7,” said Ria Chockalingam.
With such a slow-burn of a presidential election, students are going to have to think of quite a few ways to keep themselves occupied.
