After an anomalous problem-free election last year, it looks like last Thursday’s contest will add a new story to GUSA’s illustrious history of election scandal. From the election commission to candidates and campus media:
The Election Commission has received several inquiries and complaints about this year’s election. In order to follow up and investigate each claim adequately, the Election Commission has decided, in accordance with the Student Association by-laws, to delay the announcement of results until early next week.
The Election Commission has no further comments at this time. We will contact candidates individually with any questions.
There was no indication of what the complaints were about, but smart money says they at least partially involved the labyrinthine ballots that required students to keep track of ranked votes for all eight tickets. We’ll keep you updated.
