November 6, 2012 - 5:00pm
Sproul Plaza

This year the Matsui Center and IGS are joining with the ASUC and Graduate Assembly to sponsor the campus' main returns-watching party on Sproul Plaza.

Join your fellow political junkies to watch the returns on a giant screen. Will President Obama win a second term or will we elect President Romney? Will the Democrats take back the House? Will the Republicans take the Senate? What will happen with Gov. Brown's tax increase? Come to join us for a night of politics!

(Please note: In the event of rain, the Returns Party will move indoors to the Heller Lounge in the MLK Student Union.)
