It’s Election Day here in the United States. Although it’s not a presidential election year, U.S. citizens are exercising their right to vote for their local representatives in government. As a result many public (and some private) schools are closed in New York City today.
Columbia University is one of the institutions that honors our hard earned privilege to vote and encourages people to vote by closing the school to allow us to do just that. If you are interested in learning about electoral systems and voting policies, you can study it in our USP concentration.
We will be back in the office tomorrow – November 6 – to answer your questions.
