Two Chinese government workers are on a whirlwind tour of Longview this week to learn about American city government as part of their master’s degree coursework at Central Washington University.

They arrived in Ellensburg three weeks ago to begin their year-long master’s in public administration program.

CWU Election Assistance Center Aids Out-of-County Voters | CWU Public Affairs

Posted: Oct. 22, 2012

 Thousands of Central Washington University students, as well as staff members and visiting faculty, are registered to vote outside of Kittitas County. For the upcoming general election, CWU is offering a one-of-a-kind service, which will allow those voters to submit their ballots to their home counties from the Ellensburg campus.

Through CWU’s Election Assistance Center (EAC), voters may use provided computer work stations to find the ballot of their home counties through MyVote, a one-stop voting utility available through the Washington Secretary of State’s website, fill them out and submit them.

“The EAC will ensure that there are no barriers for CWU students, staff, or faculty to vote this year,” says Brianne Wood, vice president of legislative affairs for the Associated Students of CWU Board of Directors (ASCWU BOD).

The EAC will be open on Monday, November 5, from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m., and Election Day, Tuesday, November 6, between 9 a.m. and 8 p.m., in Student Union and Recreation Center (SURC) 137.

Kittitas County Auditor Jerry Pettit will collect ballots from the EAC and send them to the auditors’ offices in the appropriate Washington counties. He will even accept out-of-state ballots and send them to elections officials in their corresponding states.

The EAC is one of several new voter services available at CWU thanks to a coalition involving the ASCWU BOD, Kittitas County Auditor’s Office, and CWU’s Center for Leadership and Community Engagement, which will host an Election Night Bash in the SURC starting at 7 p.m.

Since the beginning of the 2012-13 academic year, this coalition has registered more than 700 voters at CWU and installed a ballot box on the SURC’s east patio that, Pettit points out, is one of only two such ballot boxes permanently located on campuses in Washington.

“The new ballot drop box and the Election Assistance Center in the SURC should be an immense help for students to cast their ballots,” says Pettit.
