BYUSA Election Final
As we wrote yesterday, Adam Ruri and Chance Basinger won the recent BYUSA election. According to this article from the Daily Universe, voter turnout (read: logging on to Route Y and clicking a box) for this election was the highest ever.
Winning with 54% of the votes (3327), according to our sister, Adam and Chance (click here to see their website) won at least in part because they didn't harass students the way some of the other candidates did: "who are you going to vote for? huh? huh? vote for me!"
Our goal for this campaign (which we wrote in our original post about this election) was simply that the election end with a voter-decided election and not as many recent ones have--with one candidate dropping out because of rules or Honor Code violations.
Mission accomplished. And, again, congratulations to Adam and Chance, you're popular.
