November isn’t just about turkey

Tuesday Nov. 6 was a day filled with long lines, anticipation, and the joy of wearing an “I Voted” sticker. Voters leave the polls after casting their votes, proudly wearing their stickers as a symbol of their constitutional rights.
Although it is hard to believe that women had to fight for their right to vote until 1920 when the Nineteenth Amendment was passed, women voters have a lot to think about when choosing a candidate.
From healthcare to the economy, a candidate may have a conservative or liberal view.
Voters in Massachusetts could not only vote for a presidential candidate, but also for senator representatives. Candidates like Scott Brown and Elizabeth Warren’s fate were decided on Tuesday as well.
Simmons College hosted “The Good, The Bad and The Truly Ugly: Election Edition” on Monday, Nov. 5 from 5 p.m. until 7 p.m.

The event was open to current Simmons students, alumnae, and friends of the Simmons community. Faculty on the panel included Cathy E. Minehan, Gary Gaumer, Niloufer Sohrabji and Benjamin Cole.
November is an exciting month for more than just getting to pig out on turkey. Polls were open on Tuesday Nov. 6 from 7 a.m. until 8 p.m.
