Cast your vote for Obama action figures or McCain chewing gum at AU’s Campus Store. Through Election Day, the store is offering a patriotic selection of political goodies, including hats, T-shirts, and cookies. Democrats and Republicans can pick up books by and about Obama and McCain. Undecided voters can read free information sheets on the candidates’ platforms.

The display is part of the nationwide Declare Yourself initiative, aimed at registering young people to vote. According to store director Stacy Elofir, the display’s goal is also to “support AU’s very political roots and have some fun.”
