This is a wholesale lifting of Alex Lougheed’s facebook note, in which he notices that Stephen McCarthy isn’t on the ballot.

How to vote in the AMS Special Election

The original can be found here.

Props to Alex for: voting at 1am, having eagle eyes, and also wicked MSPaint skills.

    ah. facebook converts everything to JPEG so I didn’t notice that it was originally a PNG, and those certainly aren’t wicked photoshop skills. :p

    Steve McCarthy: fixed.

    Blake Frederick: Who’s that?

    Was just going to comment on the also lack of Blake…

    I want to know what happens, if my vote isnt counted because I made it at 12:30 at night, Im’a be real pissed.

    he didn’t debate; I was under the impression he’d pulled out.

    Blake did withdraw from the race earlier.

    Pat, on the flip side, if many people voted without a chance to see that I was running, and their (your?) votes count, I would be pissed.

    Best case scenario: votes get discarded, everyone who voted gets emailed to tell them they may vote again. May not change the vote count (probably only the keeners voted last night anyways) but makes it much more legit. If that’s not possible, I think it’s debatable whether it’s better to discard the votes (but not let those students revote) or keep them. Either way someone loses.

    I’d want my vote to count, and the dozens of people that I know also voted would want their votes to count as well.

    Admittedly, SOMETHING needs to be done, but there is no way the votes of those already cast should not be counted, either by way of reopening voting for them OR by simply counting them.

    We all know which is preferential, but if the preferential method isnt available, Id want my vote to still count.

    Oh god, the bit about Alex including his name and student number is hilarious. Props.
