[Photo Story] Penn Staters Show Out To Vote On Election Day

Penn State students joined millions of Americans in casting their ballots on Election Day Tuesday.

Polling opened at 7 a.m. at the HUB and Bryce Jordan Center. Lines began stretching down the sidewalks, but folks were bundled up to avoid the cold.

At the HUB, voters were instructed to enter Alumni Hall to cast their ballots.

Poll workers then moved completed ballots from Alumni Hall to special collection boxes to be taken to Centre County’s elections office.

Outside the HUB, campaign tables were set up and chalk doodles were plastered all over the sidewalk encouraging folks to vote for different candidates.

Meanwhile, at the BJC, signs lined the walkways. Student representatives like UPUA President Zach McKay stood nearby encouraging others to do their civic duty.

Some folks even made a quick stop to pose with signs in front of Beaver Stadium. So scenic!

Planes were also spotted flying overhead, reminding the Penn State community how important its votes are.

Transportation to the BJC did not prove an issue for most students. Many chose to walk, while others decided to take the Election Day shuttle funded by UPUA.

A few decided to ride in style.

If you haven’t gone yet, be sure to hop in line at your polling place before 8 p.m. Check out our election guide for more information on where, when, and how to make your voice heard. Happy voting!
