College students headed to Raleigh to defend their vote

When you try to stifle a voice, don't be surprised if it gets much louder:

Jarius Page, a junior at Saint Augustine University, Raleigh, is among the dozens of students expected at today's meeting. "We have a voice in our community, and it's important that we be heard, because it's our future. I believe that we should have a say," Page said.

According to Bob Phillips, executive director, Common Cause North Carolina, "If it has happened at one campus, then it can happen anywhere where early voting polling sites have been placed either on the campus or conveniently nearby."

This will be the second test of the state BOE's ability to function in a non-partisan way. They have so far failed the first test, which was to continue the investigation into the Chase Burns Internet gambling money fiasco, an issue the mainstream media has chosen to ignore.
