There are a record number of polling places on UC San Diego's campus this year. See the map to find out which polling place is closest to you.
UC San Diego will host a campus-wide results viewing party on Tuesday night from 7 to 9:30 p.m. The “Election Night 2012: A Political Party" is sponsored by the UC San Diego political science department and various student groups.
As of Tuesday afternoon, nearly 300 students had RSVPed to attend the party on Facebook.
Students will be able to watch election results come in on big screen TVs and eat free pizza. In addition, there will be faculty and student panels discussing the impacts of this year’s election results.
“This event is a great way to connect what we do in the classroom with real politics,” said political science professor Thad Kousser in an announcement. “And it also will be just plain fun.”
Kousser is one of the experts involved in California Choices, a comprehensive nonpartisan website that voters can go to for information on statewide initiatives.
“California Choices is designed to help voters make informed decisions,” Kousser said. “We can’t decide the future of our state based on 30-second commercials. If the initiative process is truly to give power to the people, then people need in-depth, unbiased information at their fingertips – on their laptops, their tablets and smartphones.”
This event is free and open to the public. RSVP on Facebook facebook.com/events/383775868357928/.
