But he hasn't given up. "What you do is you fight and you lose, and you fight and you lose, and you fight and you lose and it's that pressure on the government that ensures social progress, government reform and ultimate change." Beardall is the local area's campaign coordinator for "Students for Nader", a group who is giving their all to the Nader campaign. Beardall himself gives about "a third of an eighty hour work week" to the campaign without pay, and is one of two coordinators in the valley. Many UVSC students have shown support for the third party candidate. "There are a lot who have been interested, who attend meetings, and are on our mailing list," Beardall said, "But we probably have no more than a dozen who are usually willing to help out. Depending on the event, size of audience and our needs, we will very easily tap into the other coordinator's areas and have them come help out." Students for Nader has been working extra hard in the last few weeks leading up to the campaign. "We've got volunteers from the school here that will help out based on what their schedule is," Beardall said. "We coordinate different actions, and try to get involved in different public events just so Nader's message and his campaign platform can be offered." Besides the usual flyers and posters, Beardall has been coordinating what he calls "actions", or big events. "We will be doing a last big action every day up until and on election day." "Just within the last month, we've made some really good ef- " What you do is you fight and you lose, and you fight and you lose, and you fight and you lose, and it's that pressure on the government that ensures social progress, government reform, and ultimate change.

One of such is the widely publicized petition started by students to prevent Moore from coming, and to have the student government booted from office. Moore has come and gone and the recall petition hasn't been submitted. "As far as I know, the petition was never turned in," Paul Tippets said, Chief Justice at UVSC. "There probably will never be one turned in, at least about the Michael Moore issue." Tippets is the main official in the student government office, through which appeals such as the one involving Michael Moore first go. If it hasn't gotten to him, then it is essentially of no consequence to the school. lie is I 1 11 1 also responsible for interpreting the school's constitution, and defining whether a line has been crossed or a rule has been debased. "Any student who feels like the school's constitution has been violated must take their complaint to Paul Tippets, and he does the hearing," Bob Rasmussen, Assistant VP of Student Life, said. After initially garnering media exposure with the recall effort, its main supporters, Sean Vreeland, Dan Garcia and Kay Anderson, have gone about different ways to continue to get their point across. "Sean Vreeland did write me a letter," Tippets said. "He asked for all the student government officers who voted to have Michael Moore come to campus and pay the money that they paid him to be removed from office. The reason being the constitution states that student government should have no i! f!

He at one time claimed to have more than enough signatures to force a recall election, but his petition has never been presented to student government. Students to lend a Eioiiil in Giiit falling By Marc Buchanan News Writer This year, over 70 UVSC students will join 1,000 college students state-wide to help carry out the Utah Colleges Exit Poll. The Utah Colleges Exit Poll has been predicting election results for state and national elections since 1982. The poll is the only statewide student-run exit poll in the nation, and has accurately projected every winner since its inception. All the students who participate in the poll are volunteers. The students who help with the poll had to undergo training so that they could take an accurate sample of the voters that they would question. After the training, the students were divided into groups of three or four, and assigned a voting precinct. On Election Day, the students will travel to their assigned location and question random voters who C 1 Courtesy Photo UVSC students will help with the exit poll effort in the state. will have just cast their ballots.Liz Hunt, a student who participated in the 2002 exit poll, said that questioning voters was a thankless task. "Not many people wanted to fill out the questionnaire," Hunt said. "They didn't seem to understand what they were doing, and would try to avoid us when we approached them."
