(Oct. 15, 2010)--Once again, the UTSA Main Campus has been designated one of 41 Bexar County early-voting sites for the Nov. 2 joint general, special and bond elections. Early voting runs Monday, Oct. 18 through Friday, Oct. 29 in the lobby of the University Center ballroom. Any registered Bexar County voter can use the UTSA site.

Over the years, UTSA Student Government Association (SGA) leaders consistently have sought a UTSA voting site because of student requests. SGA and UTSA Alumni Association representatives say that an on-campus, early-voting site encourages students to do their civic duty by voting and getting involved in the political process.

Since early voting sites have been designated at UTSA, nearly 8,500 ballots have been cast on campus, making it one of the busiest polling locations in Bexar County. This semester, SGA and several registered student organizations (RSOs) helped register more than 1,600 students to be eligible to vote in the Nov. 2 elections.

On Monday, Oct. 18, the first day of early voting, SGA will offer free pizza at the University Center paseo to increase awareness and remind students they can cast ballots at the UTSA site. Last week, SGA and RSO members welcomed to the Main Campus more than 40 candidates participating in the Nov. 2 elections.

UTSA officials also are encouraging faculty and staff and others in the surrounding area employed at Valero, NuStar and Security Services Federal Credit Union to take advantage of the convenient voting location.

When UTSA employees cannot vote before or after working hours, supervisors may grant employees a reasonable period of time off for voting during business hours. Employees must be registered voters to qualify for the time off; time off for voting must be requested in advance and approved by the supervisor. No reduction in vacation allowance or salary will be made for the time taken to vote, as long as supervisory approval is obtained.

Did You Know?

Sometimes you have to see the little picture

UTSA researchers are exploring matter at the atomic level with Helenita. It's one of the most powerful microscopes in the world, with the ability to operate near the theoretical limit of resolution. At 9 feet, 2 inches tall and weighing more than two tons, Helenita can dissect almost anything. With Helenita's resolution, researchers can study particles atom by atom to see how they behave.

That's critical in developing nanotechnology that will help diagnosis early-stage breast cancer or make helmets that are uber strong. Moreover, the detail that Helenita provides will allow nanotechnology researchers to create new therapies and treatments to fight a wide range of human diseases.

Did you know? Helenita can magnify a sample 20 million times its size, which would make a strand of human hair the size of San Antonio.
