Mock Election
DTH Staff Writer
A "Mock Election" for
President, governor of N.C. and
five national issues will be
sponsored by the YM-YWCA
on Tuesday, Oct. 29.
"We hope to get a large
turnout for the election so it
can be considered
representative of student
feelings on the different issues
to be considered," said Bill Lee
who along with Roger Dicks is
co-chairman of the 1968
Election and Referendum
Committee of the YMCA.
"There will be in state' and
out ot state' boxes on the
ballot for President and
governor, and we want to
analyze the results accordingly.
"For the presidential
election we have the three
major candidates. We thought
about placing other candidates
on the ballot, but then there
would have been no place to
draw the line. On the
gubernatorial ballot the choice
will be between Lt. Gov. Scott
and Congressman Gardner, and
T believe that these two
candidates will be watching
this election with great
. interest," Lee said.
The five national issues deal
with lowering of the voting age
