To: Faculty, School of Engineering
From: M.G. Safonov, for Engineering Faculty Council
Date: October 23, 1998
Subject: Engineering Faculty Council Special Election Results
Ballots for the special election of new council members were distributed to 52 full-time engineering faculty.
Returned ballots were tallied on 10/23/98 by neutral Council members F. Udwadia and T. Tsotsis, neither of whom was a candidate. To ensure ballot secrecy as required by the Council Bylaws and the Senate Constitution, the following procedure was employed:
1. Outer envelopes were sorted by department and the voter name on each was checked against the eligible voter list to ensure that no one voted twice.
2. These envelopes were then opened and the sealed inner “ballot” envelopes for each department were randomly shuffled.
3. Finally, the shuffled envelopes were opened and the votes tallied by department.
The results of the tally are summarized below.
|Department||Elig. Voters||Percent Voting||Candidate Name||Elected||Ballot Count||Vote Count|
