A student here at VPI (aka VT) is running for Mayor of Blacksburg. He's opposed by the incumbent and a leftist. I know him, so I've decided to volunteer for his campaign (also because it would be good experience). Basically, the people in Blacksburg don't always get along with the students. Two-thirds of the people in the town are students, and yet there's no one to represent us on the Town Council. Our candidate has declared himself a Blacksburg resident, and a major part of our campaign will be registering students in Blacksburg instead of where their parents live. Only about 1200 people voted in the last mayoral election, and we think that if we can register a lot of students, we have a decent shot at an upset.
