How Could He?! This International Student Still Hasn’t Registered to Vote

Can you believe it? David Gutierrez (E ’21) still hasn’t registered to vote.

For some reason, the Mexican international just can’t do it, even though he gets pestered by the same, perpetually-smiling guy on Locust every day. 

“For the last time, I’m a goddamn resident alien!” Gutierrez screamed, turning heads in the vicinity. He proceeded to pull out his I-20 to settle the business.

Moments later, Gutierrez was lectured about the importance of the elections, and that abstaining from voting is a terrible sin. 

“The only midterms I care about right now are BIOL 121 and ACCT 101, so if anyone here could help me with that, I’d really appreciate it,” Gutierrez responded.

It’s safe to say that he’ll probably never vote, and that’s a damn shame.
