For those that wonder if University of Montana students will be heading to the polls on election day, the answer is yes.

President of the Associated Students of the University of Montana Zach Brown says an on-campus group called Forward Montana, as well as the Montana Public Interest Research Group, have been working hard to register students to vote, whether they live on or off campus.

Brown says since there are no polling places on campus, the Mountain Line has arranged for shuttle buses on election day to take students to the Fairgrounds to vote. He says students who have established residency in Missoula can vote on all local and state issues, while others vote absentee on ballots sent from their home voting districts.

Brown says there is a ‘free-speech zone’ on campus near the Oval, where individuals and groups may speak freely on any subject without being silenced. He says many political and religious groups state their views with megaphones to passersby.
