A shuttle has been parked in front of Toad’s since early this morning, bringing Yale students to the Wexler-Grant School, where the Ward 22 aldermanic primary is being held. The Jeanette Morrison Ward 22 Shuttle manned by volunteer Mac Herring ’12 — current campaign manager for Ward 1 candidate Sarah Eidelson ’12 — and a crew of fellow Morrison supporters, has been picking up groups of voters every half an hour. Morrison is one of three candidates vying against incumbent Greg Morehead.

The voting location is only a ten to fifteen minute walk from campus.

“Student participation in New Haven politics is important and we want to do anything we can to make it easier,” Herring said.

The shuttle will continue to run until the polls close at 8:00 p.m. this evening.
