Strong Words: The words “There are 3,143 counties in America. The election could be decided by 106 of them,” really are attention grabbing. The colors are bright with yellow and orange, which also stand out. It is an interesting take on the election to show how much small groups of voters actually matter.

Get Out: This week, the University Star is hosting a debate with College Democrats, College Republicans, Young Americans for Liberty and the Socialist Club. It’s going to be interesting to see how each group dukes it out over local and national topics such as higher education, social and economic issues, especially since an election is coming up.
