I know I've been less active this semester in the commenting here, but I'm still reading H&R as much as I can. It's been a crazy busy semester, due in part to the fact that I'm a candidate for homecoming king. But the window for campaigning opened up this morning at 8 am, so now I get to try to throw my name out there as much as possible for the next 9-1/2 days.
Voting begins this Thursday morning, and goes through 11:59 pm the following Thursday, so if you're a current Purdue student, please consider voting for #1, Paul Branham! Even if you don't vote for me, please vote. Voting takes place on GetInvolved. If you're not a current Purdue student, you unfortunately can't vote, but your verbal or grassroots support is still greatly appreciated.
