Cappy Speaks On Voting Controversy

Cappy wrote a letter to the Poughkeepsie Journal on Tuesday about the problems Vassar students faced when voting in the local elections.

"Many [Vassar students] have a very strong commitment to the local community where they live the vast majority of the year," Cappy writes, noting students' involvement in community service, including raising $500,000 to date for Community Works.

"I would ask election officials for the opportunity to work together to resolve the obstacles for future elections that made it difficult for students to vote in the last election," Cappy writes, adding, "We need to be able to assure our students who are registered voters of their opportunity to participate in elections."
