While the 2016 election is taking place on Tuesday, the Eastern Michigan Eagles will be on the field at Ball State University facing the Cardinals.
But the Eagles will still make a point to recognize Election Day -- with very patriotic helmets.
The team's special head gear will feature an American flag-inspired Block E design on each side and a nose bumper on the front of each helmet printed with the word "VOTE," with the "E" in vote as an EMU green block E logo. A helmet stripe down the center listing the last name of each of the 44 U.S. Presidents will complete the look.
Eastern Michigan is 5-4 this season (2-3 Mid-American Conference). The Eagles have improved on their 2015 win total by four games so far this season after finishing 1-11 last season and winless in eight MAC games.
