U.S. Rep. Jared Polis hosted a rally at the University of Colorado’s Boulder campus before leading a handful of students to the campus polling station to vote on Monday.

Polis, D-Boulder, talked briefly about gay marriage, the deficit, taxing the wealthy and student loan reform before announcing that musician Ryan Adams, who was expected to preform at the rally, could not make it.

A small group of students left the rally after the announcement. Several stayed to ask questions and listen to Polis talk about his campaign and President Barack Obama’s policies.

Adams is still expected to preform a free acoustic set at the Boulder Theater tonight as part of the Gotta Vote campaign supporting President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden.
