Dear Graduate Students,

To everyone who has made it to the polls—thank you!

To those of you who haven’t yet voted: Good news! There’s still time.   

The polls are open:  
• Today until 5 p.m. in 2501 Posvar Hall
• Wednesday and Thursday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the O’Hara Student Center Ballroom.

Your voice matters. A simple majority decides the election. So, those who vote will be deciding the future for all 2,000 graduate students in the bargaining unit. Don’t sit this one out!  

Tuning in late? We’ve got you covered.  

• We’ve set the record straight on false or misleading information.   
• I’ve answered your thoughtful questions.
• We’ve added shuttle and route information.
• We’ve described what to expect when you’re at the polling place.
• And Provost Ann E. Cudd has discussed her commitment—and Pitt’s commitment—to supporting graduate student success.  

If you still have questions, send them our way. It’s important to get the facts. Get to the polls. And vote!
