Community members can vote on campus

Voting on campus will be from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday, Sunday and Monday, and from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Tuesday, election day. 

The University has been a voting center since 2019. 

“Being a vote center is essential to cultivating a non-partisan democratic engagement and voter participation in the community,” said Julissa Espinoza, director of civic and community engagement.

Espinoza said students were encouraged to register to vote on National Voter Registration Day on Sept. 20,  and this effort brought 50 new registered voters with hundreds of other students who pledged to vote in next week’s consequential midterms. 

Espinoza said students were also encouraged to register to vote by visiting the Office of Civic and Community Engagement in the Ludwick Center or by visiting the University’s voter information website.

“I hope students will be involved in voting and develop the habit of participating in the democratic process,” University Chaplain Zandra Wagoner said.

“I am planning to vote,” said Philip Conner, senior kinesiology major. “I feel like it’s a responsibility we all have as people living in the United States to vote for what we believe and have a voice.”
