Minnesota State University Moorhead student senators are working to get their peers to the polls today.
The student government group has three vans shuttling students to Grace Methodist Church, the polling site for students who live on campus.
Ashley Hoeck, the student senate’s public relations chairwoman, said it’s particularly important for students to vote this year.
“We’re trying to get all the college students in Minnesota out to vote because it is a huge election,” said Hoeck, a MSUM junior. “We’re electing a new governor, and based on who gets elected, it could cause dramatic changes for college students all across Minnesota.”
The student group is also hosting live bands tonight in the Comstock Memorial Union Ballroom and will have election results displayed on a large screen.
“It’s going to be a full day of activities, and just a giant party tonight for everyone who voted,” Hoeck said.
