With election night sneaking up in the next few days, organizations around campus and around Tucson will be hosting viewing parties for you to attend.

The Pima County Democratic Party will host its viewing party at the University Marriott starting at 7 p.m. At the same time, the Pima County Republican Party is having its event at the Sheraton Hotel on Grant Road.

For students wishing to stay on campus, though, there will be a viewing party hoted by the Associated Students of the University of Arizona and UA's cultural centers, specifically the Women's Resource Center.

“Come Nov. 8, we are co-hosting a viewing party and discussion with the Women’s Resource Center from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m.,” said Spencer Bateman, ASUA's government affairs and policy executive director. “It is going to be us along with all the cultural centers on campus.”

Bateman said the department takes responsibility for better engagement on campus and advocacy with policy makers in the cabinet.

In addition to watching the coverage of the election, each group attending, ASUA included, will give a 10-minute report on how the result of the election will impact their community, according to Bateman.

“Cultural centers will be speaking about their identity communities and ASUA will be talking about the effect on higher education and students as it relates funding,” Bateman said.

Bateman said ASUA originally planned to host a party before the Women’s Resource Center approached them with this idea, but they could not pass up the opportunity to work with all of the different groups.

“We thought it was a good way to get a lot of people there, but also to have something a little bit unique,” Bateman said.

The viewing party will be located in the Women’s Resource Center on the fourth floor of the Student Union Memorial Center and anyone can attend.
