Presidential Issues That Matter To College Women

HCOU does not support any individual candidate. However, HCOU does support voting in general. Please vote today. 

All the views are the authors and not necessarily supported by HCOU. 

There are a million reasons to vote today; it's your civic duty, if you don't vote, your voice isn't heard, you can effect change, etc. 

But voting just to vote doesn't do the country as much good as individuals being informed. I pulled out the top six issues I believe affect college aged women voters. All information was gathered from candidates websites, unless otherwise linked at the bottom.
