The Michigan Tech Huskies are making it easier for their student athletes to be a part of the democratic process.

During this day off, students who are registered to vote will be encouraged to go out and do so. Sanregret says this is all a part of the university’s goal of making sure that its student athletes are educated, well rounded citizens.
Election day is November 3.
