Dear Friends,

Today’s the day—it’s Election Day.

Important information:

  • Polls everywhere are open from 7:00 a.m. – 8:00 p.m. 
  • According to University policy, instructors should provide, within reason, the opportunity for you to make up work if you miss classes to participate in the election (be sure to make every reasonable effort to inform instructors as soon as possible if you will be absent for this reason)
  • If you registered to vote using your dorm address, you will vote at the Bryce-Jordan Center (BJC)
  • If you registered using an off-campus address, you can find your polling center HERE
  • If you are voting for the first time, bring an ID with you to vote (student IDs are accepted)
  • If you are in line by 8:00pm, you must be allowed to vote

I encourage each and every one of you who can to get out to the polls and vote in this election. Our voices have a say in the future of this nation, and today is your last chance to have them heard in this year’s election.
