In the cold and dark, UMich students and locals wait hours to vote at UMMA, volunteers provide support

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.

‘My vote is really going to matter here’: Students, Ann Arbor residents turn out to vote on Election Day

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.
