Allison Kruschke, junior at Marquette University in Milwaukee, Wis., on what issues in this election are most important to her:
“I’ve narrowed it down to two major issues. The first being healthcare because it is so far-reaching. It affects many different kinds of people, from young people on their parents’ insurance to elderly people benefiting from Medicare. We’re on the cusp of very big changes in that area right now. The second most important issue to me this election is marriage equality. The president coming out in favor of it was a very big step forward. Clearly there were political motivations behind that announcement, but that doesn’t change how historic it was or how much it means to people.”
