Question: Have the election results encouraged or discouraged you to be involved in the political processs in the future?

"If you don't vote, then you have no right to complain. If don't like what is gong on in American politics, you, you know, have to become involved."

"It encourages me even more. But I've always been involved in politics. I realize that we obviously need to get out the vote a lot more. Encourage more people to be more involved, that's all. ... It keeps getting better. I think more people are getting involved anyways. Especially since we have four more years of Bush."

"I don't think I'm really paying attention to it. After this whole election, I'm probably going to be more willing to vote. I mean, the candidates just sucked. Nobody wanted to vote, but they had their own viewpoints on it. In the future, I will be voting."

"I don't know. It depends on your perception of who you voted for. For example, the popular vote. Bush should have won anyways and he ended up winning. And whether or not that's what I want or you want or whatever, it's a democracy. Majority rules.

"I think it was a good experience to be involved in it. I actually felt like my vote counted in some way even though it was such a big margin."

"Definitely encouraged to be involved in election and politics in general just because being at college, I saw so many people so passionate about it, I was like, 'Wow. This really is something people really get into.' And I kind of got into it, mostly environmental reasons, I guess."
