1. Actor Jack Black’s band, Tenacious D, will visit Kent State University’s campus Friday to encourage students to get out and vote.

    Hosted by the Kent State College Democrats and the Ohio Democratic Party, the band will make an appearance in the student center. Students will then have the option of being shuttled to the Portage County Board of Elections in Ravenna, Ohio, where they can cast their ballots.

    Bryan Staul, president of the Kent State College Democrats, commented that the band’s visit is one more on a long list of celebrities, including “Newsroom” actress Olivia Munn,  who have visited campus over the semester to increase student involvement in the election.
