Dear UACS families,

This week we want to remind everyone that Election Day is next Tuesday, Nov. 3rd! The last day to do all-in-one early voting (applying for your ballot and voting early in-person) is today, October 27th. You may continue to drop off your mail-in ballot in person until November 3, so long as you’ve applied for it before October 27. If you have not yet voted, please scroll down and review our resources for finding your polling place and voting on election day. For our programming, we are still enrolling students, and you can find more information on site-based virtual programming in this newsletter, too!

Wishing you good health, 
The Netter Center

Penn Updates

This issue we are highlighting everything election related! Penn Today sat down with Kathleen Hall Jamieson, a professor of communication at the Annenberg School for Communication, to discuss the fast approaching November 3rd election. Jamieson says: “What’s happening right now is complicated, and the public at large is coping with trying to raise families, put food on the table, gain and hold work in a COVID world. Attention to the ins and outs of voter interference are probably not on the radar of ordinary people.” Luckily, Jamieson has her eye on this complicated and important issue. Read the full interview below.
