The Winter 2012 ASUCD Elections were held between February 21st at 8am through February 24th at 8am. Six Senators were elected along with the President and Vice President. There were 15 candidates competing for 6 senate seats, and two executive tickets running. Voting took place, as always, at http://elections.ucdavis.edu.
The CoHo debate for Senate candidates was scheduled for Monday, February 13th from 11AM-1PM. The CoHo debate for Executive tickets was scheduled for Tuesday, February 14th from 12PM-1PM. The ballot measure debate was also currently scheduled for February 14th.
Imagine a world without Choice Voting. Or one in which the person who gets the most last place votes is sent to participate in a battle royale of hunger games. Welcome to ASUCD Election Bizarro World.
All of the usual disclaimers apply, about how voter behavior would be different if they were in a pick-6 system, etc.
If voters had elected their top 6 choices instead, the winners would be...
|1300||Jaki (Jacklyn) Joanino|
|978||Chucha (Jose) Marquez|
|510||Colten Ellison Saunders|
|365||Jonathan Soo Hoo|
People who ranked their ballots all the way down to the 15th place voted for a candidate who will mathematically never receive their vote. For those who come up last, they become the Most Hated Person on Campus — a badge of honor for some.
