We’ve uploaded and posted links to all of the reports arising from the AMS Electoral Fraud investigation on our Twitter feed but since not everyone is twitter-savvy just yet, here are the links to: Final Report from Isabel Ferreras (Elections Administrator) Report from Forensic Data Recovery (Independent Auditing Firm) Revised Elections Results presented in a […]

This is part one of a two-part editorial series on the recently revealed AMS Electoral Fraud. While many of our readers have probably read the preliminary report issued by the Elections Committee, and were possibly even present at the last Council meeting, there hasn’t been a detailed technical explanation provided about exactly how the system […]

With impeccable timing, the AMS chose the last Friday of the reading break to post a press release regarding allegations of voting irregularities in the last round of AMS elections. Due to the complete absence of details in the press release and the high potential for scandal, there has been quite a bit of speculation […]

Here are the results from continuous VFM thusfar, and from the one-time VFM in interactive graph form!

Ignore the false reports, the elections committee just announced we’re over 6500! Huge kudos to the elections committee. It appears a combination of VFM and a new elections voting website has make for a sustained increase in turnout. See you all at the Gallery for results!

Note: Within an hour of this post, the elections committee broke the model! Good job, EC! (more t-tests, next time, I promise) I did a really simple logarithmic fit to the data the elections committee has been releasing. I’m going to go ahead and predict turnout this year will be 3781. Only 58% of last […]

Haven’t voted yet? Why not? It’s taken our monkeys a while, but they’ve finally counted the ballots and ranked the pairs. Who Council chose, as of Wednesday, January 20th. Note: Proxies were counted as council members. This is simply a sample for entertainment purposes–I haven’t bothered with confidence intervals or any of that fun stuff. […]

Voting is now open. Cast your ballot now! Insiders would like to offer a huge thanks to our partner, the Ubyssey, the moderator, Geoff Costeloe, the hosts, the UBC Centre for Student Involvement, and our supporters, AMS Elections. We saw an attendance of over 70 live in the house in this first-ever event. Note: the […]

Before the debate begun, Natalie had managed to rack up a bunch of endorsements from media outlets. Yet Bijan has had the larger facebook group, the smoother campaign, and hadn’t been attacked for his perceived weaknesses on tuition\UBC relations. Would there be clash? Would one candidate stick out? The esteemed Alex Lougheed and I were […]
