We can vote, but the Nazis won't like it
The municipal election is fast approaching and for those who care you can now vote too, except if you're not 18.
"It's really important that students get out and vote for the municipal elections," said Sarah Tilley, municipal affairs commissioners for the University Students' Council.
Tilley pointed out the polls will be open for the election from 10 a.m. until 8 p.m. on Nov. 10 and there will be polls set up on campus.
Students living in Elgin, Medway-Sydenham and Alumni Halls (the residences east of the Thames River) can cast their votes at 1201 Richmond St.; students living in Perth and Essex Halls can vote at Althouse College, and students living on the west side of the river in the other residences can vote in the University Community Centre, Tilley explained.
"Every single student is eligible to vote if you're over 18," Tilley stated.
Walking across campus? No sweat
So, how much fun is it to walk? It's pretty alright, eh? How about walking for a great cause? Now there's some fun stuff.
This Sun., Nov. 9 will be the second annual UWO walk for awareness in aid of breast cancer research, said Sarah Burley, the organizer of the walk. "All proceeds will go the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation."
"The walk will proceed across campus, zig-zagging to incorporate each of the five residences," Burley said, adding each residence is a learning station where walkers will stop for 10 to 15 minutes to learn about breast cancer. "We will be raising money through pledges," she added.
Participants can pick up pledge forms at any campus residence, or contact the breast cancer awareness team at firstname.lastname@example.org. The fee for registration is $4 and each person who registers will receive a T-shirt, Burley explained.
The walk will begin at Saugeen-Maitland Hall, where registration will take place at 2 p.m., with the actual walk starting at 3 p.m., Burley said. "There will be a coffee house following the walk at 5:30 in the Saugeen main lounge."
