Vote Invalidated By Engineers
For the second time in as many months, elections for
important student posts have been mishandled and thrown
out for re-balloting-.
The increased enrollment in recent years, tied with this
year’s overall election interest and active coordination among
civilians to support qualified personnel among their ranks
in previously all Corps positions, has contributed to voting
While progress is being made to reduce student apathy,
election administration has worked in opposition to voting
In truth, only 423 votes were cast Tuesday in Student
Senate elections, or about one-fifth the votes cast in the
March 28 class elections..
But to those who took the time to vote, both were
equally important, and in both cases, protests by candidates
revealed miscues which invalidated the results.
The class elections required clarification of campaigning
in the Memorial Student Center, poster displays on campus
and enforcement of clothing regulations without such prece
Results of Tuesday’s Student Senate election were
thrown out by the Senate Election Committee when Elec
tion Commission Chairman Tony Benedetto gave them the
authority to do so.
Dick Westerbrook, a candidate for senior engineering
representative, among several others, protested that polls
had closed prematurely and that there had been cross-over
voting. This would involve, as an example, a junior in geo
sciences voting for someone in liberal arts.
Each one of the protests could have been avoided with
the least amount of preparation and coordination by the
election commission. It was its responsibility to be thorough
ly familiar with election rules and procedures.
It was its responsibility to insure that students did not
vote twice, did not violate campaign procedures and did not
We hope that next year’s commission takes the time
to adequately prepare for student elections. It is its job
to establish and enforce a system of voter registration, to
see that voting is as valid and as swift as possible.
If rules are changed or suddenly enforced, then there
are several means to notify students well in advance. If
students are to have the representation they need to coordi
nate and arbitrate with the administration and among
themselves, then the best people have to be elected.
Interest in student affairs and a large turnout are two
ways to insure the best men in the right positions. It
should be done right—the first time.
