Experience proved to be a minor factor in voting this year as newcomers Christopher Osuala and Christine Hall won president and vice president of the Associated Students, Inc. by a vote of 1,486 to 921.
The announcement of the winners did not come without controversy though. The Senate Representatives for the college of Agriculture, Engineering, and Environmental Design could not be announced due to the disqualification of some of the candidates.
Candidates who were disqualified have until Wednesday at 5 p.m. to appeal their disqualification. The terms of the disqualification are still undisclosed according to Elections Advisor Susan Ashe.
The official results with the senate seats in limbo will be announced Thursday at the ASI Senate Meeting
Ballotbox wielded 2556 voters this year compared to last years 2045. With approximately 20,000 students attending Cal Poly Pomona it means still only about 12.5 percent of the student body voted. But with a 25% increase in voters from last year Ballotbox seemed to be a success.
Five of the candidates ran uncontested and two senator positions for the Collins College and Business College had no one running for the seat. Those positions are still available for any students of those colleges to attain.
Some other notable winners were Tommy Ward for Multicultural Senator at Large, and Danielle Sigala, Greek Council senator at large.
