An Election Night Party will feature free food, games, and prizes while participants watch election results 8 p.m.-midnight Tuesday in the Kirby Hall of Civil Rights auditorium (room 104).

For information on polling sites, hours, required ID, and guided walks to the polls, see the Calendar of Events on the Lafayette web site.

The party is sponsored by Holla Back: Your Voice Your Vote, a coalition of students and organizations committed to creating an informed voting community. The group has publicized and/or coordinated many election-related events this fall, including an Election Extravaganza last Tuesday in the Farinon Center atrium. Ten organizations sponsored information tables, including the College Democrats and College Republicans. Students participated in activities and picked up material related to various candidates in the national, state, and local elections.

A highlight of the Extravaganza was a mock election held by Lafayette Activities Forum. Among the 438 votes cast, 61% were for Kerry and 34% for Bush. Sixty-four percent of the voters were women.

The full results:
Constitutional, Michael A. Peroutka: 1
Democratic, John F. Kerry: 269
Green, David Cobb: 13
Libertarian, Michael Badnarik: 2
Peace and Freedom: Leonard Peltier, 1
Republican, George W. Bush: 149
Write-in: 3
