"We won't be here during spring break, which is when voting is."

Danielle Adler, UNC sophomore majoring in political science and peace, war and defense

"I think it's really important to bring students in to voting, and I really care about this election. I think it's going to change our foreign policy, and I'm really excited to vote."
