Tyson, Trassolini elections all but assured

BREAKING NEWS: The AUS elections got a little less exciting today, as AMS representative candidate Glen Sustanto withdrew. Remaining candidates Ryan Trasolini and Katherine Tyson are now facing a Yes/No vote on the ballot.

In my time at UBC, only one candidate has ever lost a Yes/No vote. Diana Diao, the former Science Senator, PRO and General Science rep ran for the latter position unopposed, but due to a quirk, was unable to vote for herself. Zero ballots were cast in that election, and in a Yes/No vote, that counts as a loss. Council ignored this and appointed her anyway.

    Dan Anderson also lost SUS Geography rep Yes/No, as he ran the No campaign, and tried to get as many sanctions as he could. It was something like 2-4.

    I’d heard of that. I also understand that Jon Lam ran a No campaign against himself when he ran for Director of Publications, but Yes won anyway.

    No campaigns were ran against Jack Hind Smith when he ran for AUS Academic Coordinator, and Yian Messoloras when he ran for Social Coordinator. Both were unsuccessful.

    Joel McLaughlin tied 20 Yes, 20 No, in my first year at UBC in an acclamation for 3 Arts AMS Representatives. Because it was a tie, Elections Administrator Lianne McLean voted in favour of the status quo, that is, having Joel continue as an AMS Rep.
