Students at Northwestern University Pritzker School of Law will have plenty of time to cast their ballots for Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump come Nov. 8. (Sorry Bernie, but the numbers just don’t look good).

After a push from two campus groups, the law school announced Monday that it will cancel all classes on election day to allow students to vote and perform election-related public service—a first for the Chicago school. Northwestern joins a small number of law schools canceling classes for election day, including Liberty University School of Law; the University of Louisville Louis D. Brandeis School of Law; Northern Kentucky University Salmon P. Chase College of Law; and the Alexander Blewett II School of Law at the University of Montana.
