Larisa is the most qualified Pro-Change candidate. If you want to actually MAKE the changes that Travis is pushing for, then she is the candidate to do that.

Those changes are up to the Senate. If the Senate wants them, it'll go right through any Presidential veto. If the Senate doesn't want them, no amount of pleading from the SBP is going to change that.

Voting for Travis gains attention for him and his cause, but improves Mike's chances of winning. Use your vote as you see fit, but just be aware of what it's effect will be.

Perhaps a more important race, however, is the SSP race. Just know your issues when you vote.

Tech did interviews with the candidates. They are up on the page and may prove helpful in cutting through fluff of position statements.

voting for travis really doesn't help mike's chances, unless he can get over 50% of the votes, in that case, it doesn't matter that people voted for travis instead of larisa. travis will force a runoff and since he is pretty much not elegible, there will be a runoff between larisa and mike with no option of a write in.

Do you know if votes for an ineligible candidate (Travis) would count towards the total number of votes that the winning candidate needs a majority over?

A hypothetical situation to look at:

Mike 45 votes
Travis 30 votes
Larisa 20 votes
Clarence 5 votes

Mike would have 45/100 of the votes cast (not majority), but if Travis's weren't counted, then he would have 45/65 (a majority). It would seem that Travis's votes would have to be included in the total. Can anyone shed some light on this?

Quote :
"Ā§7-1.25. Single Seat Winners.

For any race in which only one position is available, the winner shall be the candidate who receives a simple majority (greater than 50%) of the votes casts. In the event that no candidate receives a majority of the vote, a run-off election shall be conducted. The top two candidates will be in the run-off. If there is a tie for the second seat, all three candidates will be in the run-off."


so mike would only have 45%, thus a runoff.

"Illegial votes" (the technical term), that is votes for inelgible candidates, fictitious persons, etc are still tallied into the total votes cast. My understanding is this is how the run-off for SSP last year happened, as there aren't too terribly many students meeting the service requirement for SSP.

If you think about this, it makes sense, as a majority victory requirement's purpose is to ensure more people want the person elected than don't. I'd say those casting "illegial votes" are very much not wanting some other person or people.

I wanted to refrain from commenting on any names in the elections, but since this endorsement came out I had to say something, for those people who might base their votes solely on this.

Larisa is completely unqualified for the office. She has been here since the beginning of last year, and I saw firsthand the job she did when I worked with her. Maybe things have changed since then, but in both of the student organizations I was part of with her, she failed to adequately perform her duties.

She has a lot of spirit, and is intelligent, but fails to follow through effectively. In addition, her views often drove away people from the organization who had the ability to bring quality ideas to the table. As an individual I respect her ideas and views, but not as a campus leader.

I have had the good fortune to work with many people since coming to NCSU who have been diligent workers, but I have also had the misfortune of working with a lot of people who think that effective governance comes through idealistic measures. It does not. It is the result of persistence and hard work.

markgoal...I used to have a lot of respect for you until you said:

Quote :

She hasn't done anything all year. I guess that's what pro-change means: going from doing nothing to doing something maybe. Pro-change candidates are people who haven't been involved at all and want to bring about change (Clarence and Travis), not people who have been involved, but haven't done anything.

VOTE NO TO PRO-TUITION INCREASE CANDIDATES!

I don't mean to say that she is the most experienced. That is obviously Mike. He has done many good things in his time in SG. However, he is not pro-change if you will.

Of Clarence, Travis, and Larisa, Larisa is the only one with any experience. That is the general idea of my statement. You may feel that she is not qualified, but I challenge you to find a more qualified pro-change candidate.

Mike's proven his effectiveness as a leader.
Larisa hasn't even come close.

I'd vote for Travis and Clarence before I voted for Larisa. She ought to have run for president of the UAB with her concerts and what not.

Like it really matters who wins...

After the election no one cares because we never see them do ne thing to help the students...
At least I dont...

Who ever gets the job will do the job... It will get done but I dont see how they have ne power
NCSU admin will do whatever they want with or without our consent...

All they care about is our tuition money and apeasing us for 4-5 years...

Maybe if someone explains what they can exactly do and how much power they really do have.
I might change my opinion...

Note: do they control the money... If not then they have no power.

they shouldn't have the power. they're fucking students. it's just here so all the little "high achievers" can get to together and play grabass together. if state let a bunch of 19 year olds have serious input, then I would find another school.

Well I am not exactly thrilled with everything and everyone in Student Government, but those of you who say they have no power and don't do anything are just ignorant.

If you ever showed up you would see what they can and on occasion actually do accomplish. My problem is not with their power or the reasons people serve, but rather the fact that so much CAN be done, and yet so little actually IS.

I think I've done my job--and I know that my constituents are pleased with my work.

I'd just like to point out:

A vote for Josh Cox is a vote for Gary Palin.

While Palin supports Josh Cox, so do many others that often oppose Palin. This includes 2 co-authors of the bill to impeach Gary Palin.
