On stubhub.com last night,
the cheapest ticket for sale at a

A mere 550 bucks seems
like a bargain to Engineering
sophomore Michael Berger.
He has been hunting for tick-
ets for a month, mostly on
ebaycom and craigslist.com.
"Everything before was six
or seven hundred," he said.
"Now you can find tickets for
four or five hundred each, and
they seem to be coming down
further."
The price drop is probably
due to increased supply, said
Berger, who's seen a rash of
tickets go up for sale recently.
"I think people are realiz-
ing that they have to get rid of
them," he said.
OSU sophomore Alex Hall
said the wait to validate tick-
ets in the student section for
use by non-students was more
than an hour long yesterday
morning.

Turnout higher
than 2002
midterm
By JAKE HOLMES
For theDaily
Even without P. Diddy
warning them that they must
either vote or die, young vot-
ers cast ballots in record
numbers during last week's
midterm elections.
Exit polls show that the

percentage of registered 18-
to 29-year-olds who voted
was about 24 percent nation-
ally. That adds up to just over
10 million votes, up signifi-
cantly from the 2002 mid-
term elections.
In 2002, just 20 percent
of eligible young voters cast
ballots.
And across the nation, vot-
ers under 30 cast 13 percent
of the total ballots, compared
with 11 percent in 2002.
At campus precincts, vot-
ers fell just below the nation-
al average. The average voter

turnout across the 11 pre-
cincts on or near campus was
23.6 percent.
Voice Your Vote co-chair
Jonathon Kendall, though,
said the turnout was impres-
sive for midterm elections.
"I was very pleasantly sur-
prised," Kendall said. "The
gubernatorial elections are
obviously a lot harder to get
people excited about."
Though youth voter turn-
out was up nationwide, Ken-
dall said those figures only
tell part of the story about

Campus has only
one group devoted
to war protest
By CHRISTINA HILDRETH
Daily News Editor
On a campus that once was
a bastion of anti-war activ-
ism, few students have loudly

opposed the war in Iraq since
it began more than three years
ago.
There have been scattered
protests,assorted bumper stick-
ers and occasional canvassing,
but a largely apathetic student
body has expressed little inter-
est in replicating the storied
demonstrations of the 1960s.
Yet not everyone is docile.
There is a small, devoted group
of protesters willing to forsake

sleep and free time - though
not yet class or exams - to voice
dissent.
Two of these, LSA seniors
Alex Smith and Mikhail
"Misha" Lomize, are members
of Anti-war Action, a fledgling
student group devoted to per-
form exactly what its name pre-
scribes. They and about eight
other re members are dili-
