2009 UA and Class Council Election Results

Source: Ainsley K. Braun ’10, Chair, UA Election Commission

The winners of the 2009 Undergraduate Association and Class Council elections were announced by e-mail on Saturday, March 21.

The election was conducted using a preferential voting system, as outlined in Article V, Section 6A of the UA Election Code. Students rank the list of candidates for each position in order of preference. The ballots are then sorted by first preference. If no candidate receives a majority of votes, the candidate with the fewest votes is removed, and ballots that supported that candidate are reslotted according to their next preference (or discarded if none was given). This removal and reslotting process is continued until a candidate has a majority of votes.
