CLEMSON — Clemson University has canceled classes scheduled for Election Day, Nov. 6.

The university will not be closed, and it is not a state holiday for faculty and staff. Employees can consult with their supervisors to determine their eligibility to take leave time during the day to vote.

“Tuesday, Nov. 6, is an important day in our nation’s life. I urge every eligible voter at Clemson University — faculty, staff and students — to make voting a priority that day,” said Clemson President Jim Barker.

The university’s academic calendar was revised a few years ago to move Fall Break from early November to mid-October at the suggestion of students and with their support. The president made the decision today to allow students, faculty and staff the time off on Election Day, in accordance with state law.
