The Juice (Student) - Oct. 17

See what's happening on campus this week.

Oct. 17, 2022

Vote early on campus Oct. 25

An absentee satellite voting station will be opened in Saemann Student Center for the upcoming midterm elections from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 25. All eligible voters are encouraged to take advantage of this convenient early voting opportunity. If you are not registered to vote in Iowa, you can do so at the satellite station.


You'll need a Voter Verification Number to submit your in-person absentee ballot. For in-state students with a valid Iowa driver's license, this will be your Iowa driver's license number. If you are an out-of-state student or a student without a valid Iowa driver's license, you will need to request an Iowa Voter ID card from the Bremer County Auditor's office; email swolf@co.bremer.ia.us to make this request as soon as possible. The Iowa Voter ID card will have a PIN which will function as your Voter Verification Number.


Visit the Iowa VoterReady absentee website for more information.

The Executive Committee of the German Institute is pleased to announce a call for applications to support activities or endeavors related to the German language or Germany.
