We de- cided to find out if Umass Boston students were politically minded enough to hit the voting both on November 2nd. One hun- dred students were surveyed and asked if they believed it was necessary to vote. The majority, 75 students, believed it was their duty as citizens to cast a ballot and partici- pate while 25 students were satisfied with being followers or simply felt that their vote didn’t matter. Do you feel that it is necessary to vote in the upcoming election? Yes 75% No 25% 100 students surveyed.
