VOICE OF THE PEOPLE
THE MICHIGAN SUPREME COURT RULED THAT COLLEGE STUDENTS CAN VOTE LEGALLY IN THE TOWN WHERE THEY GO TO SCHOOL. DO YOU THINK THAT THlS WILL AFFECT ANN ARBOR'S LOCAL ELECTIONS?
Don Fagenson student- "I think it'll probably be something like Berkeley and I hope it works to get rid of people like Sheriff Harvey. I think students should be able to control the city, you know. There's no reason why they shouldn't. I think they'll really get out and vote. They're interested, I think."
Mrs. Everret Hayes-housewife-"I am very optimistic about the attitude of the young people. I think they're more mature than we were. They'll vote responsibly and do good things for our city."
Steven Tonsor history prof.-"There is another youth culture in the non-college towns. The main bloc of Wallace supporters were 21-27 years of age. In A2 the voting will favor Democrats. I can 't guess the margin. Most early adults are apolitical."
Wendy Adams student-We are living here. The laws and whatever happens here affects us too, so I hope that the people get out and vote. Some kids are really fired up but others aren't, so I really can't make predictions."
Mel Foster student-"According to what we know so far, not many 18 year olds have turned out when the opportunity arises. But I think the people will elect more liberal candidates maybe even a campus militant. "
