Quote of the Week:

“The world is a looking-glass, and gives back to every man the reflection of his own face. Frown at it, and it will in turn look sourly upon you; laugh at it and with it, and it is a jolly kind companion; and so let all young persons take their choice,” – William Makepeace Thackeray

(May you take this with you whether you are grateful or sad or joyful or discontent or confused by the election happening tomorrow.)

(in preparation for a mindful Tuesday)
Here is a voting cheat sheet for an easier tomorrow:

The closest place to vote around Villanova University is located within Radnor Elementary School, a whole one mile from the campus. If this is your first time voting here (or any voting location you are voting for the first time), you will need one of the following:
1.) A photo ID issued by any Pennsylvania agency or the US government (so, a U.S. passport, U.S. Armed Forces ID, Student ID, or Employee ID)
Or, if you do not have a photo ID, you may bring,
2.) a confirmation from a county voter registration office, a non-photo ID issued by Pennsylvania or the US government, a firearm permit, a current utility bill, a bank statement, a paycheck, or  a government check

Voting goes from 7 a.m. until 8 p.m. on Tuesday, November 8th
Unless, of course, you’re one of those very responsible people who voted early or
if you’re from a different state (like me!). If this is the case, here are the last days to send in an absentee ballot


Full disclosure: you do not get to wear these fun stickers with everyone else (photo from, JC) 

Save the date:
Tuesday, November 8th: 

-Election Day: Shuttles to Voting Polls (obviously good & relevant to this article)
Friday, November 11th: 
-CAT Films: Jason Bourne
-Nova Nights: Nova Dance Silent Disco

We should know the results of the election on Tuesday night. That’s if everything goes right (unlike the election in year 2000, where results were not made official until December). Each of the candidates is having their respective victory party or consolation party in New York, which is also where they will perform their speeches. If everything does not go smoothly (for reasons of fraud or electronic failure) then we must rely on the mercy of fate (and probably some other hard working people).

The inauguration day is January 20th, 2017.
Early voting has not given us much insight into the winner, so we will all have to hold tight.

A book if you’re already planning the next four years,
John R. Johannes’s (whom we’ve talked about ) book, Thinking about Political Reform (which is in the library), may prove useful (if that’s your thing).

#FalveyPeek at the Week provided by Hunter Vay Houtzer, a graduate assistant on the Communications and Marketing Team at the Falvey Memorial Library. She is working toward an MA in Communication at Villanova University, and on being a more casual text-er (less exclamation points, she’s told). Send your thoughts/suggestions to Hunter at #falveypeek. See you next Monday for more!
