Elections 2004: The Last Push

“Have you voted today?” asked senior Katie Franich as she greeted classmates entering Chase Hall for lunch. Franich, of Milton, Mass., was one of a group of Bates students who participated in a nonpartisan election-day canvass to encourage their peers to go to the polls and vote. She wore an oversized T-shirt that read: “Make them pay attention to us. VOTE November 2.”

Throughout the day, a steady stream of Batesies made their way to the Lewiston Armory on Central Avenue to cast ballots for the presidential race as well as for local candidates and referenda.
