When the summer began, Californians were no doubt hoping that this fall would contain less political drama than the last.

Most of 2020 was a year to forget and one to never repeat.
But when it comes to the 2020 election, the story is more complicated.
Sometimes, the most important things in life are overlooked.
And perhaps nowhere is that truer than in UCLA student government.
Although far from being the most important thing in life, it is one of the most important campus organizations.
When classes abruptly and indefinitely moved online in the spring, UCLA rightfully showed an outpouring of support for its students.
However, some departments have not shared this same compassion.
It’s election season again.
And for Bruins who are learning to become educated voters, the numbers 16, 22 and 23 should mean more than just the dates of their upcoming exams.
College certainly isn’t what it used to be.
And not just because while students struggle to stay awake for their online classes, their universities are struggling to stay afloat.
Saying one thing and doing another is a problem for most.
But that’s just another day at the office for UCLA – especially when it comes to listening to students.
As the world struggles with the devastating effects of a pandemic, people are looking to their leaders for support and guidance.
For UCLA students, that support and guidance don’t just come from university administration or state legislators – it should include their student government as well, the Undergraduate Students Association Council.
