The Bemidji State University Student Senate hosted a candidate event Thursday evening, with a number of candidates or representatives for state and local politicians invited to table at the Beaux Arts Ballroom.
Freshman student Naziah Matt said he was interested in someday running for office and wanted to learn more about local candidates.
Junior B Gauthier said they felt local races were very important this election year.
Student Senate members were on hand to assist students with getting registered to vote and preparing them for what they’ll see on the ballot.
Election Day is eleven days away on Tuesday, Nov. 8, with early absentee voting open through Nov. 7.
