I am writing in response to the Sept. 27 article "College students face voting barriers."
While trying to vote in the 2000 presidential election at the State University at Stony Brook, I was told I was unable to vote because I was not registered to vote there. I was told that I had to go vote back home, but I was unable to do so because going back home to Queens on a school day was impossible.
If it is so important for us to vote, then why are their so many regulations and constraints? Because of this I was unable to vote in the 2000 presidential election. As for the 2004 presidential election, I don't know if I will be voting because once again I can't vote at school. Again this year, I was told I have to go back home to vote.
I wrote to you because I sympathize with this article, and I know many other people do to.
