Randall Jeppesen Reporting Hundreds of college students are spending the day asking voters what matters to them.

Inside the Kimball Tower at BYU is the students' exit poll headquarters. Students Brad Jones and Ashley Landon say they've put in long hours to make sure everything runs smoothly.

"Last night we had students here until midnight, and then we were here this morning about 5:00," Jones said.

"Over the past week probably at least 40 hours; it's like a full-time job," Landon said.

This election, the students are focused on Salt Lake City where they have volunteers at every polling place. They're handing out questionnaires, asking about Referendum 1, what they think about a Main Street sky bridge and how the voters view Rocky Anderson.
