Today is Election Day! Here’s everything you need to know to vote:
Where should I vote?
If you are registered to vote north of the train tracks (Alice Paul, David Kemp, Dana, Danawell, Hallowell, Mertz, Parrish, Willets, Woolman, Worth), your polling place is:
100 College Ave
If you are registered to vote south of the train tracks (ML, PPR/A, Apartments), your polling place is:
401 Rutgers Ave
When can I vote?
The polls are open from 7 AM until 8 PM.
How do I get there?
Shuttles will be running every fifteen minutes from Parrish Circle from 10 AM until 8 PM. The polling places are both less than a fifteen minute walk from campus.
What should I bring?
Your college ID. To prevent any chance of voter harassment, do not wear any gear endorsing a particular candidate.
What if my only free time is during my afternoon snack break?
Never fear! There will be a food truck with free cupcakes at the Swarthmore Rutledge Elementary School polling place starting at 3 PM.
What am I voting on?
This isn’t a presidential election, or even a national one. Does it matter if I vote?
Yes! Read Abby Diebold’s reflection on why local politics matter.
