In an election-year tradition, the Wellesley College community gathers in the Pendleton East (PNE) Atrium to watch returns from the 2012 Presidential and Congressional elections.

Food and fun for all (over 21 please bring ID) starting at 7:00 p.m. on election night! Co-sponsored by CPLA and the PNE Faculty Director.

For a sense of the thoughtfulness and civility with which Wellesley students approach their civic duty, hear some commentary on voting. (Election Sound Off by Hailey Lee '14.)
