Stony Brook University’s Center for Civic Justice hosted a community dialogue titled “We Voted, Now What?” on Nov. 4 as the country held its breath for a second night in a row in anticipation of the election results.
The Center for Civic Justice had a single mission before Nov. 3 — to get students to vote. The center provides services and support that empowers students to contribute to their community. Voting during elections allows students to do so.
Stony Brook students faced confusion and extra paperwork when they tried to vote on campus on Tuesday, Nov. 5. Students who switched dorm buildings on campus since the last voting cycle were asked to fill out affidavits, worrying some that their votes wouldn’t count.
