Presidential Election is just days away, and many UMass Lowell students are casting
their ballots for the first time. We want to ensure that they (and you, if
you’re eligible to vote) go into the polling booths as informed voters. UMass
Lowell is a leader in political polling, and we have a lot of experts on campus
here to help voters navigate the voting process.
Here are some ways UMass Lowell students are preparing for the election:
They’re registering to attend a virtual discussion with our top political science professors, Chancellor Jacquie Moloney and UMass President Marty Meehan
They’re double checking resources we’ve shared on everything they need to help get through election day
UMass Lowell students are inquisitive and active participants in their community and country, and we’re proud to support them. We’re excited to support so many as they vote during this truly historic election.
Did you know that UMass Lowell has a polling center? Like, one that collects data from people about their opinion and then analyzes the information so that the world can learn what people really think about esports or the link between sports and concussions?
Fun fact: Both of those were topics for polls and surveys conducted by the UMass Lowell Center for Public Opinion. The polls the center conducts are sent to media outlets all over the world and helps a variety of different fields gain necessary data to move their missions forward.
Don’t feel bad if you didn’t know about our polling center. Honestly, I didn’t know we had one either until about a month ago. Even after working here for a year-and-a-half, there’s so much to do and see here at UML that I’m still learning and surprised pretty often (in a good way!).
