Send the UA a message-- vote for none of the above

We represent a group of students who have grown fed up with the annual tradition quaintly known as the Undergraduate Association elections. To be brief, we feel that the UA does not represent the undergraduate students of MIT, but is merely a small group which has managed to garner a plurality of votes in poorly-attended elections.

We have decided that rather than throw away our votes on hack or non-existent candidates, we will work to convince other students to write in "None of the Above" on their ballots next week. We challenge the UA Elections Board to tabulate these protest votes and release an honest count of how many students feel disenfranchised by the UA.

If we are correct, a large fraction of students will register their disgust for the current system. We urge our fellow students to consider: Is the UA really better than nothing?
