Junior Colin Jones and sophomore Katie Patterson won the ASLC elections March 9 for president and vice president, respectively.

The final vote between Jones and opponent junior Shelby Simmons, the current ASLC secretary, was 438, 61.2 percent, to 199, 27.8 percent. Fifty-four voters, 7.5 percent, abstained, and 25, 3.5 percent, votes were disqualified by the ASLC Bylaws.

Between Patterson and opponent junior Sarah Spranger, the final vote was 450, 62.8 percent, to 211, 29.5 percent. Fifty-five voters, 7.7 percent, abstained.

However, following a now annual trend, only 716 students votes this year, compared to 839 in 2009 and 861 in 2010. That’s only 46.7 percent of the student body.
