Voter turnout strong; Union likely breaks single-day visitor record

Tag icon ,

Unsurprisingly, Tuesday (Nov. 6) was a busy day for the University Union and its polling place, with some 1,770 walk-in voters coming to cast a ballot, reports Union director Rick Warpinski. Add those numbers to the building’s normal weekday traffic and the Union likely saw more than 8,000 visitors Tuesday (which would be a new record high). As we told you here yesterday, a brief morning evacuation (due to a benign smoke alarm) didn’t faze voters or staff. There was strong and consistent voter traffic and lines all day, and Warpinski says the student vote count likely was strong.
