Student body presidential election runoff voting begins today between candidates Juan Soltero and Christopher Leddy.
Glitches that students experienced during last week’s elections have been fixed, said Nachman N. Susson, deputy supervisor of elections.
Last week, students in certain apartment complexes had trouble voting when IP addresses were restricted to only five votes.
Supervisor of Elections Michael van Hoek said SG hopes all students will vote, but a more reasonable goal would be to attract the same students who voted last week.
“If the same number (of students) vote, I think that will show those students really are engaged,” he said.
Nine polling stations and two mobile polling stations will be set up around campus, and students can vote online off campus.
The first 500 students to vote in the Marshall Student Center (MSC) today will receive a “burrito buck” coupon for a free burrito from Chipotle Mexican Grill.
The polling stations on campus will be located at Science Center Room 216, Social Science Room 279, Education Building, Engineering II Room 118, Engineering II Room 229, Library Room 113, Student Government Computer Services in MSC, Business Administration Room 2404 and Communication and Information Sciences Room 1035.
Mobile polling stations will be located at Argos and Greek Village.
Voting takes place Tuesday and Wednesday from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.
