November 6, 2012 in Berkeley began with voters hitting the polls as early as 7am. Throughout the day, Berkeley residents and students stopped by their local polling places to cast their votes and have their say in national and local issues. While results slowly started rolling in around 6pm, at least a thousand students gathered on Sproul Plaza where a screen was set up in order to watch the outcome. Meanwhile, mayoral candidates waited intently in their campaign headquarters waiting for official results.
