San José State University Political Science Professor Mary Currin-Percival encourages people to be aware of their rights. As director of SJSU’s Institute for Public Affairs and Civic Engagement (IPACE) and the on-campus voter registration, mobilization, and education initiative SJSU Votes!, Currin-Percival’s focus is to inform SJSU students about the November 8th election. Midterm elections also provide an important opportunity for voters to voice their opinions on local and state ballot items, along with the city council, mayor, and state legislators.
San José State will have a voting station at the Provident Credit Union Event Center starting on Saturday, Oct. 29. Doors open from 9 a.m.- 5 p.m. every day on the south side of the Event Center, near the Spartan Recreation and Aquatic Center — and on election day, it will be open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.
