ASUW Election Results: Curiosities and Amusements

Every year after the dust settles from the insanely boring ASUW elections, “they” publish a document that contains all of the vote. While most students just don’t vote, some ditfully punch their virtual ballots for whoever is running from the Greek system. The rest will take advantage of the write-in system. Here are a few examples:

ASUW President

  • Hottie Sarah Chow
  • Homer Simpson
  • Jake Locker (Two Votes)
  • Luke Skywalker
  • You don’t deserve my vote

Vice-President

  • ???
  • anyone but her
  • ASUW sucks
  • Batman (Two Votes)
  • Chuck Norris
  • Dino Rossi
  • Christine Gregoire
  • Dubs (The husky mascot)
  • m00t
  • Nikky Southerland (Tied for third with 10 votes!)
  • NOT Madeleine McKenna (Four Votes-Eventual Winner and Only Candidate on Ballot)
  • Ronald Reagan
  • Yoda

Community Relations

  • Jesus Christ
  • No Confidence
  • Not Tunny Vann (4 votes)
  • six year old would do a better job than you
  • Vladimir Lenin

Diversity Efforts

  • Black girl handed pink flyer in odegaard
  • Roberto, Destroyer of Men

Other Worthless Positions

  • A block of Swiss Cheese
  • Anyone Else
  • Jason wrote a nasty Facebook note
  • this whole election has been a waste of time
  • William Shatner
  • Bender Bending Rodraguez
  • Darth Vader
  • Maggie Bennett’s Mom
  • The fountain ducks
  • I am really worried…
  • Girl you Sexy
  • Random COBOL Guru
  • Yo, fuck Kyle Fuller

There were also votes that seemed to follow a trend:

  • The Simpsons Voter: Always voted for  Simpsons Character
  • Basketball Voter: Voted for UW Basketball Players
  • Dubbs: Voted for The Mascot
  • The Complainer: This voter always made fun of the election
  • Batman: Every position
  • Campus Squirrels: Usually the second place candidate in all positions
  • “Andrew P.D.G. Everett” Has one vote in every position. I suspect he voted for himself.
  • The “NOT” crowd: They put “not” in front of whoever was running.

An interesting point is that out of all the votes Hillary, Obama, McCain and others got last year, Obama was the only one with one vote. And I mean one vote!
