For Akins students and staff who want to vote in this years election, Tuesday is their last day to vote.

After years of having a polling site on campus for Election Day, some Akins voters may be surprised to learn that there will be no polling site on the Akins campus this on Election Day, Nov. 6. 

The closest location to vote will be at an empty storefront in Southpark Meadows that they county has rented just for voting purposes. The location is at 9600 Interstate 35 S., Suite 600. It is between the Hobby Lobby and Carter’s stores. 

There will also be a site at nearby St. Alban’s Episcopal Church, which is on the northbound side of Interstate 35 south of Onion Creek Parkway. But, again, there will be no on-campus voting on Election Day at Akins. The other close polling station is at Manchaca United Methodist Church
