UPUA Elections Commission Conducts Vote Analysis, New At-Large Winner Named

Upon finding discrepancies in some ballots cast in Wednesday’s UPUA Elections, the Elections Commission has conducted a detailed review of the vote, resulting in a change in the election of an at-large candidate.

In a detailed report on the election given to the commission by Student Activities, it was found some candidates received write-in votes on top of ballots cast for them from the options available to voters. The discrepancies resulted in a new result for the 20 at-large seats, with the final position going to Matt Ikenberry instead of Brad Stuby, who was previously reported as the winner. The commission eliminated all write-in votes for candidates already appearing on the ballot.

Taking out the double votes for Stuby, Ikenberry ended up with 1,341 votes to Stuby’s 1,339, a two-vote difference. Stuby was previously reported as garnering 1,360 votes, meaning 21 voters cast ballots for Stuby twice.

The commission has extended the appeal window for the election to Sunday at midnight instead of the originally scheduled deadline tonight due to the discrepancies. The policy was extended to all races, but no other positions were affected by the mistake since those races were not as tightly contested.
