"In voting as a citizen, you vote for president because it is your duty as a citizen, basing your vote on your honest judgment about what is in the best interests of the country," writes Dana Radcliffe, adjunct professor of public administration and international affairs. "While your individual vote will not causally determine who wins, your voting is rational and even obligatory as a civic duty to take part in the collective act of citizens’ choosing whom to entrust with the nation’s highest office." Radcliffe's op-ed, "Voting can seem irrational — but you should do it anyway," co-authored with Martin Dobelle '19 EMPA, was published in The Hill. 07/10/20
