Overheard On Election Day In State College

Election Day is officially over, Penn State. There’s nothing quite like a tumultuous election cycle to get people talking. You were vocal at the polls, and we listened. Here are the most quotable moments we overheard:

Kid who’s so disillusioned by our political system he’s having 2004 flashbacks: This election is really about voting between a giant douche and a turd sandwich just like in South Park.

Guy who cares more about CFP rankings than our next president: I voted for Kanye West/Saquon Barkley cause they’re the GOAT.

Sorority girl not interested in defying stereotypes: I don’t even like voting for my sorority, what makes you think that I’m going to vote in the elections?

Annoyed guy who just received another Go Vote text: Oh, today is election day? I had no idea since I got a million other messages sent to me.

Kid who has way too much faith in FTK: Dude, why can’t they have a system in place like THON does so I don’t have to wait two hours in line to choose between two shitty candidates and a bunch of other seats I don’t care about?

Girl with a thirst for healthy knowledge: Where do you want to watch the elections tonight?

Guy with the right idea: My vote is wherever it’s cheapest to black out cause FUCK these elections.

Girl who’s already out of meal points: He won’t tell us who he’s voting for because he doesn’t want to disappoint us. But rich people usually vote for Trump.

Girl who’s over real life politics: We should go back and watch Scandal.

Girl who knows every episode of Scandal by heart: Yeah, we should watch the episode where they rig the election.

Girl who’s still beyond over it: No, cause that’ll make me mad.

Girl who didn’t know Eric Trump was in State College yesterday: Eric Trump’s visit was super low-key.
