Athens liberals looking for an alternative to Clinton and Trump should take a break from sobbing while they spoon with their life-sized Bernie Sanders dolls to hear Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein speak in room 101 of the Miller Learning Center on campus at 7 p.m. Wednesday, June 29. The event is free and open to the public.
Generally, I’d say supporting a third party amounts to throwing your vote away, but for those worried about a “Ralph Nader in Florida in 2000” type of situation, consider that Clinton is unlikely to win Georgia, and the election is even more unlikely to hinge on Georgia’s Electoral College votes. So it’s probably OK (at least in non-swing states) to cast a protest vote for Stein without being held responsible for the Trumpocalypse.
