Photo gallery Students vote early — in outdoor tents
Students cast their votes for the Nov. 3 presidential election during the first day of in-person absentee voting on Tuesday, at three outdoor tents set up on campus. The tents are outside Memorial Union, outside Union South and on East Campus Mall, and they’re open 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. until Oct. 30. More people are expected to vote absentee this year because of the pandemic. Voters and pollworkers wore wearing face masks and practiced safety protocols.
Tents were set up to allow students and others to safely cast their votes during in-person absentee voting.
