How We Voted

The Mac Weekly

The Mac Weekly exit polled a total of 230 students outside the Macalester Plymouth United Church, including 228 current students and 2 alumni. Because this precinct is composed in large part of on-campus residents, our results are weighted towards the first- and second-year classes.
