Jim Hummel edged Thomas Jessiman in Zffy
7tr ee editor's race while Joe Buckner and Scott Nor
bsrg appeared destined for a runoff in the student body
president's race Tuesday night in the closest vote in re
cent campus election history.
With all polls reporting, Hummel had 3,270 votes
(50.6 percent), while Jessiman had 3,191 votes (49.4
Buckner hovered near the 50 percent mark all night
and may well have won the election without a runnoff.
However, the Elections Board refused to finish counting
the ballots from James and Wilson Library.
The student body president's race was thrown into the
stalemate when Norberg asked about a document all of
the major candidates had signed earlier agreeing to ac
cept the results from Hinton James despite the fact that
no registration sheets were used there.
Norberg said, "I wanted to make sure that the form I
signed did not validate any other irregularities in the
vote. I want them to release the James vote. I don't
know why they want to hold it."
"There will be an emergency meeting of the Student
Ti'prems Court thls.morrJng:.iindjha..elctioni-r;:.':!:i.
will be available by mid-afternoon in the Great Hail,"
Deana Williamson, executive assistant on the Elections
The DTH race seesawed back and forth for most of
the night with Hummel taking an early lead following
the results from the North Campus vote.
Jessiman bounced back to capture both Morrison and
Ehrir.ghaus. He held a slight lead at the time. It remained
neck-and-neck throughout the night, with the difference
never reaching more than a handful of votes.
However, things began to look good for Hummel
when he captured Granville, an expected strong place
for Jessiman, by 41 votes. Jessiman and Hummel sup
porters waited anxiously for Hinton James, which was
the site of the disputed poll. (See related story.) Hummel
captured Hinton James by 20 votes, apparently assuring
him of a narrow victory.
When the James and Whitehead results came in,
l's supporters let out a yell and opened bottles
Hummel said following his apparent victory, "There
were a lot of answered prayers here tonight. It came
right down to the people who worked for me. The candi
date carries the ball, but it's the people who work for
him who win the game. It was the off-campus vote that
Jessiman said, "There are bigger mountains to climb.
I was upset by a lot of the mudslinging that went on."
Jessiman thanked the people who worked for him, but
he did not concede the election.
With ail the voting sites except James and Wilson re
porting, Buckner had 2,835 votes or 49 percent, Norberg'
had 2,404 votes or 41.6 percent. Tim Smith had 332 (5.7
percent) and Mark Bozymski had 209 (3.6 percent).

The counting of ballots from Hinton James
dormitory was halted Tuesday night after
Elections Board officials discovered no regis
tration sheets were included in the ballot box.
Without these sheets, the board could not
determine the validity of the count. As of
Wednesday morning, the student body presi
dent and DTH races were so close the results
from James could decide the winner or throw
the races into a run-off. A Scott Norberg
supporter said after Buckner won an EO-vcte
margin at Morrison, "We definitely need
Extions Board member Thomas Sharpe said ;
the' registration sheets for James might have
been left out while the boxes were being
filled. 1 ;
Marjorii Bentley and James Hurst, two
poll tenders who opened the box at James,
said they did not see any registration sheets.
' The emission was not noted by election offi
cials during the nine hours the poll was open.
"I am a freshman, this is my first time. I
don't know anything about elections," Hurst
said. "I am a freshman, this is my first time
for doing this," Bentley said.

At 4 p.m., board member Deana William
son visited the poll site. "We were sorushed,
because there were 23 boxes we had to check,"
she said. OrJy the number of ballots was
checked at each site, she said.
When the error was discovered late Tues
day night, the board asked each candidate on
the ballot at James to sign a statement saying
he would accept the results. As cf 1 a.m.
Wednesday, all candidates except those for
senior class president and senior class
secretary had been reached and agreed to
. ' "1 don't think James cs take Mother elec
tion; this election has been too hot said EU
McCuIlough, covernor of James. "We air;o
run the risk cf net having the same percent
age of people voting."
When the mistake was discovered by the
board, all candidates were called to the stag? at
Great liail. The beard then suggested a re
election might be held Thursday and that
only residents who voted Tuesday would be
eligible to vote. That suggestion was opposed
. WrJe some beard members tr.ed to get James
poll tenders cn the phone, at 11:07 p.m.,
Sharpe typed the etatement for the candi
dates to sign.
Also, beeau-.e cf a communications break
down between tcard members, the board
had no poll t:sd;rs far five iltts. When the
error' was discovered late Monday night,
