Shuttles available to polling site on Election Day

ASUI and the Center for Volunteerism and Social Action have partnered for the upcoming Party to the Polls from 2 p.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 6 in the Vandal Student Lounge.

There will be board games and video games throughout the day, as well as free food for those in attendance. Different student artists will be coming in to perform throughout the event.

Students will continuously be shuttled to the polling location at the Latah County Fairgrounds from the Vandal Student Lounge. ASUI President Nicole Skinner said there will be timed pickups at residence halls and Greek houses. Skinner said she hopes the event will make voting more accessible. Residence hall pickup times are 3:00 p.m., 5:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. while Greek house pickups are 2:00 p.m., 4:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m.

“Even if people have already voted or are not voting, they are welcome to attend as well,” Skinner said. “Community members all are welcome. It is a non-partisan event with no political literature, it’s just chance for everyone to come together and celebrate civic engagement.”

The Latah County Auditor’s Office held early voting on Oct. 27. They will continue to offer early voting during regular office hours through Nov. 2 and their S. Adams St. location.

Residents of Idaho can register to vote through the Idaho Votes website. To qualify as a resident, an applicant must have resided in Idaho for 30 days prior to the election. Idaho offers registration during election day.
