With election day drawing near, Millersville University and the Center for Civic and Community Engagement have big plans to participate. On November 3 from 4 to 8 p.m., students can enjoy an outdoor, socially distanced event at the Student Memorial Center and Quad. The best part? It all can be enjoyed for free with a a current Millersville ID, mask and completed LiveSafe app. Students, faculty and staff will simply need to check in for a wristband to enjoy the festivities.
The event is part of the University’s continued commitment to register 100% of eligible students to vote and will include coffee and other hot drinks, food trucks and commemorative t-shirts and travel mugs. There will also be live viewing screens to view coverage of the election, along with political games, trivia, and activities sponsored by UAB such as the ever popular red white and bamboo.
The Center for Civic and Community Engagement aims to keep students informed about voting in this year’s election. “Their vote is their voice, and we hope students will use it loudly that day,” shares Lori Leaman, events coordinator of the center.
On election day polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. across Pennsylvania. If students haven’t already voted by absentee ballot and are registered in Millersville, there are three local polling places, depending on your specific address. More information and voting locations for all municipalities can be found here.
If students are looking for help voting or looking to volunteer, the Center for Civic and Community Engagement is located at the Huntingdon house with hours Monday and Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Tuesday through Wednesday by appointment. More information on the center can be found here.
