“Public education shouldn’t be at the mercy of politics. But it is.” -Education Minnesota

In order to help students navigate the voting process, there are copies of various informational flyers from the office of the MN Secretary of State available on the West Campus by the Nest.  These include information on who can vote, same-day registration, info regarding whether students should register at their parents’ address or their school address, items one can and cannot bring to the polls, voting rights, and more.

In the same area faculty, staff, and students can also sign a card pledging to vote.

Pick up your own “I will vote” sticker there, too.

Also, the student senate has invited candidates from local house and senate races to campus. Candidates will be on-campus on 10/31 and 11/1 from 11:00-1:00. Click the attached flyer for a better image.
