Photo gallery Voting starts on campus, with precautions

August 4, 2020

Early in-person absentee voting started in four large outdoor tents on campus this week for the Aug. 11 partisan primary, with poll workers wearing personal protective equipment and taking other safety measures. Four polling locations are open from noon to 4 p.m., from Monday August 3, to Thursday, August 6: Library Mall, Engineering Mall, DeJope Residence Hall and the Kohl Center. Voters are asked to wear face masks. On Election Day, poll workers will be taking similar precautions and will also offer drive-up voting.
