Happy Election Week from The Michigan Daily! ICYMI: we sent out a special edition of The Weekly Roundup yesterday reporting some of the most important election results from throughout the state. If you haven’t already, go check your inbox for the scoop on the historic results from Tuesday night.
This week, we had you covered with stories from one of the most remarkable weeks in our campus’s history. Students braved cold elements and extremely long lines to vote at the UMMA, The Daily caught up with students on how their vote would impact the election, President Ono visited Trotter Multicultural Center and more.
Tuesday morning, hundreds of students lined up outside of the UMMA to exercise their right to vote. However, the jubilation did not stop there, as the line persisted deep into the night with students enduring cold temperatures and remarkably long lines. Bystanders and volunteers brought voters a litany of supplies to brave the conditions, including pizza and hot chocolate.
In a historic election that resulted in a clean sweep by Michigan Democrats, U-M students and community members were proud to cast their ballots in our state, many of them for the first time. Ahead of the election, The Daily gathered thoughts from students about the vote, like Business junior Ronit Gagneja, a California resident who felt that the competitiveness of Michigan’s election this year made his vote more impactful here.
On Tuesday, U-M President Santa Ono paid his first visit to Trotter Multicultural Center where he expressed his support for the Black Student Union’s “More Than Four” platform that advocates for Black students on campus. Students that spoke with The Daily said they hoped Ono would do more than just talk about his commitment to DEI on campus and take action to improve the University’s policies.
