Rock the Vote Stupor

It is a long standing vaudeville like joke–“Remember to vote on Tuesday. But if you disagree with me, vote on Wednesday when the lines are shorter.”  It is a half-hearted attempt to reduce voter turnout of dimwits.

The Rock The Vote Effort at Colorado State University took out a full page ad in the student newspaper trying to increase voter turnout.  Unfortunately, the copy in The Collegian recommended that students cast their votes on Thursday November 4th instead of Tuesday November 2nd. I doubt that the Facebook correction makes up for the media miscue.

To think, Proposition 19 is on the ballot to legalize marijuana in California.  The CSU Rock the Vote staff just seems to be a on a Rocky Mountain High.
