USF Student Body President General Election Update

March 2nd, 2010

There was a tie reported last week in the student body elections for USF Student Body President so they were planning on having a run-off this week which has now been canceled and turned into a general election. Personally I hate the idea of runoffs or just re-voting because the initial voting group doesn’t come back out (because of time or lack of knowledge about it since it’s usually really close to the original election) and numbers just go down so it may not be as effective.

It has apparently been rescheduled though to after spring break due to voting software problems:

“After careful investigation into the recent general election voting database, we found that voter irregularities did exist in the voting software. After discussion with the Supreme Court, Election Rules Commission and Student Government Advising, Training and Operations, it is necessary to cancel the run-off election and to hold an expedited general election post spring break. This discovery only impacted the presidential/vice presidential race. Therefore, all other ballot items (i.e., senatorial) are exempt and were not affected by the voting deficiency. All original presidential tickets will be on the ballot. We want to thank the students who brought this electronic error to our attention. The times and dates of the expedited election will be released later this week. We deeply apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused any of our candidates and their supporters.” Source: http://www.sg.usf.edu/?q=node/1
