The race for a spot in the U.S. Senate has Texans on the edge of their seats. According to polls as of Oct. 17, incumbent Ted Cruz is favored to win, as Beto O’Rourke trails by nine points. Although students are indecisive, the fact that they want to vote is huge.

“I am voting because I feel that it is a civic duty being an American citizen,” senior Montana Whitley said. “But getting information is crucial to make an informed decision.”
