The Black Hour endorsed Dawna Williams for ASLC President. She was the only presidential candidate to complete our questionnaire. The Black Hour stands by the endorsement today.
During the April 20-21 elections, Jiang received 333 votes while williams received 242 votes. A run-off is necessary because neither candidate received the 51 percent majority needed in accordance with a district wide election code, according to the Laney Tower. The ASLC election committee announced Jiang as the election winner prematurely.
The Tower estimates five percent of the total Laney student population participated. A total of 766 ballots were cast with 725 voting in the presidential election, according to the Laney Tower.
The Tower also reported that a number of students were turned away from the polls because they did not have valid Student Identification Cards. Elections will take place from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. in the Student Center.
