 The election time for most of our university’s student council has come, from the individual departments to the university’s student body. Often, our students’ indifference to the event is the most apprehensive phenomenon. During last year’s election for the Chung-Ang University’s student body, which was a single-candidate election, it was questioned whether the voting rate would reach 50% or not, or in fact whether the election result mattered at all. It seems hilarious that the biggest goal of the election headquarters is to get people ‘to’ vote in the first place, and not specifically to vote ‘for’ them.

When students were younger, the student body election was always a big issue, mostly because the candidates were someone they knew or someone that their friends knew. They were students who they could find out more and hear about. However, as students enter university, where too many students attend too many departments, the candidates are usually a total stranger; they do not know the candidates, and moreover do not have any means to get to know them. I believe that this is one of the main reasons why so many students are not interested in the election. ‘So why trust them, and why vote for them?’ would be what most university students think about the candidates, since it is considered to be a case of being in a ‘league of their own’.

So, whose fault is this phenomenon? Is the burden on the voters, or on the candidates to arouse attention on the election? Students should have the time to look back on themselves, speculating the current situation.
