By all accounts, the votes of young people are critical in today’s Presidential election, and they are especially important in the crucial “battleground” state of Ohio, where not only the Presidency, but dozens of state and local candidates and issues that directly affect our lives are on the ballot.
The polling place for students registered to vote in Hiram is located at the Village Municipal Building, where the police and fire stations are located (on Route 82 toward Garrettsville, behind the Hiram Christian Church and their education building).
Students registered in Hiram have been given a utility bill from Hiram College to use as identification at the polls. This will significantly speed up the voting process for students and they will not need to vote provisionally.
From 11:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Election Day, there will be a free Election Day meal at the Hiram Christian Church. Everyone is welcome to come eat wonderful homemade soups, breads and desserts while talking with friends and catching up about the election.
Several RAs and campus groups are holding a Presidential election viewing program on Nov. 6th at 8:30 p.m. The community is invited to the KC Ballroom to do fun activities, play games, eat food and watch the results roll in.
