    It is against the rules to discuss politics on these forums and I want to be clear that is not necessarily what I want to talk about. I am just curious what election season looks like at USAFA. From what I have learned on this forum already most people remain residents in their home states and fill out absentee ballots come election season. What I am asking is if the elections are an event at USAFA, do people talk about them, how are the results announced, etc?

    If it's anything like CGA, it's a fun time. I was a government major, so it was probably a little more interesting for us. I voted absentee until I got out of the Coast Guard.

    If you have any questions about what you CAN or CANNOT do as a federal employee, check out the Hatch Act.

    It's a non-event. People keep their opinions to themselves like they should.

    I don't know if you've been here lately, but there's plenty of political discussion. Not a lot in the classroom depending on your major (trust me, the law, polisci, and FAS majors talk about it plenty in class), but I've seen plenty of discussion. Not nearly as much as when I was at civilian college, but the discussions are happening.
