Readers Respond: Midterms Voting Difficulty - The Atlantic
Readers respond to Jemele Hill’s account of her difficulty voting in Florida.
I Still Don’t Know Whether My Vote Will Be Counted in Florida
When Jemele Hill went to vote, she discovered that her name had been removed from the rolls over something she’d tweeted. “In another election year, this incident would just be a funny story for me to repeat at parties,” she wrote, “but this was the most serious election of my lifetime.”
I am 21 years old, a university student, and a Florida resident. I voted in the 2016 presidential election, or at least I think I did. I sent in my absentee ballot ahead of the deadline, but I never checked to make sure it was counted. I never thought to.
For the 2018 midterm elections, I again sent in my absentee ballot ahead of schedule. This time I checked. It still hasn’t been counted. I put extra stamps on it and a return address so that I would at least know if something went wrong. I’ve called my county office a number of times, to no avail. I was proud to vote as a young person in that infamous 18–29 bracket, but this only made me lose even more faith in our government. This is our voice; we are encouraged to use it, and yet, even if we follow all instructions, we are not heard. After reading your article, I don’t think it’s outlandish to wonder whether someone saw that the ballot was addressed from Berkeley, California, and simply disposed of it. And that is the most disheartening feeling.

Game Design Program focuses on making students interactive | The Daily Illini
Going from the Slavic Department to the School of Information Science may seem like a huge academic jump for anyone, but for Judith Pintar, it was meant to be. “My own research is within the game and game design narratives, with storytelling as a focus,” Pintar said. “I was a game designer before I went...
