Election Day events planned

 

 

Cal U is planning events throughout the day on Nov. 6 to encourage the University community and members of the public to vote in the midterm elections.

 

On Election Day, there will be music, food and giveaways from 10 a.m.-7 p.m. in the Natali Student Center.

 

Also in Natali on Nov. 6, voters can check the location of their polling place, learn about acceptable forms of identification when voting at a polling place for the first time, and pick up nonpartisan candidate guides.

 

The morning celebration is billed as "Midterms Matter: Donut Forget to Vote." Dr. Michael Slaven, of the Department of History, Politics, Society and Law will be handling DJ duties in the lobby. Donuts will be served, as well.

 

The Student Government Association will also be coordinating walks and rides to the polls from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Those interested should email SGA president Seth Shiley at shi1177@calu.edu.

 

Beginning at 9 p.m. Nov. 6, a 2018 ElectionWatch party, sponsored by the American Democracy Project at Cal U, will be held outside Vulcan Theatre, located in the Natali Student Center.

 

Students, staff, faculty and community members will share informal conversation and pizza as results of the Pennsylvania gubernatorial, senatorial and other key races unfold.

 

The events are presented by the American Democracy Project at Cal U, with funding provided by the Campus Vote Project, Campus Election Engagement Project and #VoteTogether.

 

New to Cal U, the #VoteTogether campaign is from Civic Nation, a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization that encourages engagement and public awareness to address issues.
