“I think it’s good because different people work different times and now everybody can have a chance to go vote. In America, people all work different hours and when they’re free, they can go do it.” Halima Siddi, Business Administration



“It’s good for people that don’t have flexible schedules because some work far or close. So I think it’s a better idea to have different places.” David Diaz, Psychology



“I think it’s great because sometimes the one that’s right by your home isn’t the one that you want to go to or has too long of lines. If things come up, it gives you a longer chance to go, so I think it’s a good idea.” Miriam Berman, Expressive Art Therapy




“I think it’s a good idea because people usually have school, or work, or family stuff to do, or sometimes you have to register to vote at a certain spot but now you can just go anywhere closer and you can just do it there so I think it's a really good thing.” Astrid Cortez, Photography



“That’s better because people have more time to make the right choices. And also, say a person is at their friends house and they say ‘let’s all go vote’ then they can all go vote instead of only having to go to the place that they’re closest too.” Julissa Contreras, Communication Disorders





“I think it’s a great idea because a lot of people miss out on voting because maybe they don’t know, so this gives them extra time to prepare.” Savannah Reynolds, Undecided




“I think it’s a good idea for people who have scheduling issues that might not be able to make time to go and vote, and it’s a nice extended period that gives them plenty of time.” Robert Arias, Journalism
