Election Day Details
October 13, 2020 8:42 AM

Dear faculty, staff and students,

As you likely know, the State of Illinois has designated this year’s Election Day, Tuesday, Nov. 3, an official state holiday. Like other state holidays, the university will not hold any classes on that day.

The holiday declaration is intended to enhance opportunities to vote and promote voter safety during the COVID-19 pandemic. There will be on-campus voting locations at the Activities and Recreation Center (ARC), the Illini Union and the University YMCA. Anyone voting on-campus is strongly encouraged to wear a face covering and practice social distancing. For more information about early voting hours and locations or to find your Election Day polling location, visit this website.

There will also be changes to the COVID-19 testing center locations and hours. On Tuesday, Nov. 3, on-campus COVID-19 testing will only be available from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the following locations:
