Michigan State Considering Fall Break for Election Day
How do you try and get more young adults to the polls on election day? Well, one way could be to cancel classes for that particular day and that's why officials at Michigan State University are considering adding a fall break to their academic calendar for the 2020-2021 school year. The hope is that with the additional fall break, which would happen on election day, a day off from attending classes would allow students to get to the polls to cast their vote. If it all gets approved, classes at MSU could be canceled on Monday, November 2nd, and Tuesday, November 3rd, which is Election Day.
According to the Detroit News, previous released numbers indicated that there was a slight decrease in student vote totals at Michigan State University from the presidential elections held in 2012 and again 2016. Click here to read more.
