Some campus poll sites opened late for Tuesday's
general elections, and one never opened at all, causing
inconveniences for voters.
The poll site at the Medical School never opened
because no pollsters showed up. "Ill take the blame
for that," Elections Board Chairman Bruce Lillie said.
"I thought we had pollsters there but we didn't." ;
"The same thing happened at the Law School, but
we got people over there," he said.
A sign telling voters to go to Rosenau Hall was
left at the Medical School, but the polls at Rosenau
didn't open until U a.m.
"The poll tenders just didn't get there on time," lillie
said. " v :
Lillie attributed many of Tuesday's problems to a
lack of poll tenders.
"Poll tending is always the biggest problem," he said.

The Medical School and Rosenau Hall poll sites
are for graduate districts, and many graduate students
may not have been able to vote because the Medical
School wasn't open, said Brad Torgan, president of
the Graduate and Professional Student Federation.
"Whether or not itll be important I don't know,
but it bothers me that the attitude of the Elections
Board is so flippant about the whole problem," Torgan
"It meant all the med school students had to go
to the poll site at Rosenau, if they could find the time,"

Lall said one of the main problems
between the United States and the
Soviet Union today were the constant
charges of both nations that the other

are saying that we're cheating by
upgrading our radar."
The two countries need to reach
another agreement on the issue of
nuclear testing, she said.
Lall said the Soviets were very
concerned with Reagan's insistence to
go ahead with research for the multi-billion-dollar
"Star Wars" program.
"The Soviets see that we're techno

research), but if we insist on continuing

The number of people who voted for RHA president
at the Union poll site was significantly less than the
number who voted in the other races, Lillie said. A
number of people probably realized that they weren't
supposed to vote for that race, he said.
"If I did it again, I would make sure to put the
condition about RHA voting on the ballot," he said.
The pollsters did not control whether students voted
for CGC representatives in their correct districts,
because the entire election was on the Honor System,
