President Barack Obama will visit Capital University for a “Get Out the Early Vote” event on Tuesday, Nov. 1, in The Capital Center Field House.

Doors will open at 2:30 p.m and will be a ticketed, free event, with a limited number of tickets being distributed on a first-come basis.

“As a community that celebrates free inquiry, critical thinking, civil dialogue and the free exchange of ideas, it is no coincidence that Capital finds itself at the center of political debate among presidential candidates, their supporters and opponents, and those who want to observe the process. There is history here.” Capital representatives said in a press release statement.

Capital recently saw Green Party candidate Jill Stein earlier this fall and has a strong history of hosting high interest political figures, including presidential nominees, John McCain, Mitt Romney, George H.W. Bush and Bob Dole.

Capital reinforced their being a nonpartisan venue for any discourse.

“As a non-profit, non-partisan university, Capital’s decision to serve as the venue for these events must not be perceived as an endorsement of any candidate or view. It is Capital’s mission to prepare students to be critical thinkers, careful discerners of information, and active citizens.”

Capital said in their statement.

For those interested in attending — tickets are available on Capital’s website and public RSVPs are available on Hillary Clinton’s website.
