Students to debate key issues

On Monday, a student debate on this year’s elections will be held by the College Republicans, Young Democrats, Get Out the Vote and the Division of Student Affairs at 7 p.m. in the University Center Lower Lounge.

Two panels of four people will debate the economy, national security, Iraq, healthcare and energy.

Harout Samra, the state chairman of the College Republicans and state chairman of Students for McCain, believes students debating the issues will offer advantages compared to other media outlets.

“Sometimes college students seeing their peers talk about the issues is a better way to portray why this is important to the average college student,” he said.

Picture ID, signature, registration needed

Early voting began Monday and will be continuing until Nov. 1.

Early voting requires proper voter registration in Miami-Dade County and picture identification with a signature. The address on the identification does not need to match the registered address. The identification is used only to verify photo and identification.

Check voter registration online

Voter registration information can be checked for confirmation at www.miamidade.gov and www.voteforchange.com.

Any University of Miami student can contact Gilbert Arias, assistant vice president for Student Affairs, at 305-284-4922  for troubles related to voter registration.

Early voting shuttles for students

Get Out the Vote, in conjunction with Student Government and the university administration, will be providing shuttles to the Coral Gables Public Library, the closest site for early voting.

The shuttles will run Thursday and Friday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. From Oct. 28 to Oct. 31, shuttles will run from noon to 6 p.m. On Nov. 1, the shuttles will run from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

The shuttles will pick students up at Stanford Circle.

University of Miami Students for Obama are providing Obama vans to Coral Gables Public Library. The pick-up locations are at Hecht and Stanford residential colleges and Stanford Circle, and the vans will run from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. The Obama vans run from Oct. 20 to Nov. 1. Buses will come every half hour.

The College Republicans are not offering a similar service but encourage students to use the Get Out the Vote buses, according to Maria Pelfrey, UM’s chairwoman of College Republicans.
