Campaigning continues! Be sure to vote! Po Volume Eighteen, Number Twenty-Five Grievances By Maci Nielsen Assistant Editor Two of the three parties campaigning for student body offices filed grievances against each other having to do with the businesses being asked to sponsor them in campaigning. For the parties to gain sponsorship from local businesses, they had to submit the names of the businesses to the Development Office who would then clear the businesses as being all right to contact for sponsorship or not. Each party submitted lists of businesses they desired to contact for sponsorship.The grievance filed against : .vSiS'"- .::::'::::" ': : vJWWWSM i;:: ' W-M-f:--. ' r" 8$ .. '"'';'v ''W?:;...

LLEGE UTAH VALLEY COMMUNITY COLLEGE OREM, UTAH spark controversy in Student Body elections presidential candidate Kelly Bitters and his party, "Focus," (Tawnya Smith Activities Vice-President candidate, and Bill Evans Academic Vice-President candidate.) by presidential candidate Kevin De Adder and his party, United Studentbody (US), (Tammy Hen-rie Activities Vice-President candidate, and Erik Lavcr Academics Vice-President candidate) was dealing with Packard's and Hallmark for sponsorship. DcAdder had submitted Packard's and Hallmark on his list to Development, and made contacts with these businesses after being okayed. They had agreed to sponsor his campaign. Focus also submitted Packard's and Hallmark on their list because they had personal contacts with them. (Bitters had worked at Hallmark and knew the manager well. Smith is manager at Packard's.) Since US had already contacted these two businesses for support. Focus could not, and were not supposed to. This was US' grievance against Focus. Bitters and his party were frustrated because they felt they undoubtedly would have received support from the two businesses due to their personal contacts. They contacted the businesses anyway, on a personal ba- TIM sis instead of on a professional basis, after talking with Development and having the businesses cleared for them also. As a result, both Packard's Voters will be eligible to win prizes, coupons By Crisy Talley StafT Writer In an effort to combat low-voter turnout experienced in past years and encourage more participation in the upcoming student body elections, prizes will be awarded two lucky students. One lucky ticket holder will receive a CD player, while a sec Computer Service will register election voters By Janet Foulk Staff Writer Student body elections this year will initiate a a new system in voting. Through a system set up by the Computer Services office, ballot box stuffing will become impossible as students will register and identification will be checked through the computers. Voting terminals will be hooked up to the VAX-8600 (main frame computer) allowing immediate access to an updated record of who has voted. Student IDs will be needed when voting and the student's social security number will be recorded and put into the main frame computer. This will prevent any student from casting more than one vote. Wednesday, April 25, 1990 Controversy Continued on page 14 ond student will receive a gift certificate from the UVCC Bookstore. Only students who vote will be eligible to win the prizes. In addition, all voters will be given a coupon to good at the Outpost. Everyone is encouraged to vote on May 1 from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. on May and from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on May 2. In the past, voting stations used lists with the names of all students, and names were crossed off when the student voted. Problems were encountered because a student could vote at one station, have hisher name scratched off the list, and then vote again at a different station. The second station had no way to know that the student had previously voted. In this way, a student could put in one vote per station. Voting is expected to be convenient with voting terminals placed strategically at UVCC. There will stations set up in the Science building, Gunther Trades building, in front of the Student Body offices as well as on the Provo campus.
