The Memorial Union Early Polling Station is located in room 163 across from Classical Notes and next to STA Travel. It first appeared during the 2004 Presidential Election. Early voting for UC Davis was the brainchild of Yolo Country Registar Freddie Oakley. It was not in place for the 2006 election, as Oakley said that ASUCD lacked leadership or something and failed to promote voting. Problems also included student volunteers being (really) late, and the low voter attendance. It is fully operational for the 2008 City Council Election.
No less than 2210 people cast their ballots here in November 2008.
2006-11-01 16:27:39 Last Year only 400 people used early voting, and while its great that CalPIRG worked so well w/ASUCD on voter reg, ASUCD hasn't worked with anyone on Early Voting. That Said, Early Voting Will Occur at the Davis Senior Center from 10 to 3 this whole week, so Vote Early and Don't Forget or Regret. —MaxMikalonis
2008-02-03 21:19:19 UCD has done a terrible job of advertising the early voting. When I tell people that I vote early there, just about everyone says they didn't know it existed —MattHh
2008-05-28 17:03:54 I voted there today, it rocked. DO NOT VOTE THERE ON TUESDAY IF YOU WANT TO VOTE IN CITY ELECTIONS! —AndrewPeake
2008-05-29 21:39:51 I love the MU early polling place! —JeremyOgul
2008-10-29 14:10:21 Can we vote early here if our normal polling place is not on campus? —sweetMeliss
Yes, anyone registered in Yolo County can vote at the MU from October 27-31 10am-4pm. According to this SacBee article, the Davis Senior Center will be open on Saturday, November 1st from 10am-4pm for early voting also. —LillianChow
2008-11-03 18:49:37 Well, was it 2210? More than 2210? What about the Tuesday November 4th vote, which has not yet occurred? —IDoNotExist
