The Ballot Box:
All day-long there will be a ballot box in Viking Union 714. Iris Maute-Gibson, vice president for governmental affairs, said that Western is currently the only university in the state that hosts a ballot box. This ballot box will be staffed by students. Maute-Gibson, said this is a tremendous privilege for Western, and particularly for the Associated Students to host one of the few ballot boxes in the county. She said they are very expensive to run, there are not many in the county. The ballot box is meant for Western students, faculty and staff as well as community members.
