So here’s the deal with the election: it’s online. Advertising has indeed been sparse, but there will be an ad in The Sun Star on Tuesday. Voting ends December 11.

In other ASUAF news, according to the most recent minutes (they say November 22, but they’re actually from yesterday) there is no monorail in the works! People have been joking for quite a while about a possible monorail on campus (it’s part of the pedestrian-campus plan), but it turns out that it’s just a joke.

Bummer. I really thought UAF might spend money on a monorail when funding for maintenance, and research/teaching facilities, is hard to come by.

That’s pretty much the highlight of the minutes though. There are various other ideas floated around, reports of people going to meetings and planning unspecified events, a few appointments were discussed, but nothing too earth-shattering.

    This may sound stupid – but hang with me for a minute. So I received an email saying that if I voted I could win an Ipod Nano (or something). I clicked the link, and looked through the list of people “running” for seats, and there’s nothing to vote for. They are not running against anyone, and there are all kinds of open seats. A person would have to have their stuff together in order to get others to write them in, and if that was the case, they would’ve had their stuff together long enough to have made the ballot in the first place. Right? So what’s the point?

      Yeah, it really isn’t much of an election. There was very little advertising for petitions (required to run for a seat), which must be part of it. The elections are rarely terribly exciting in the fall, but this seems like a new level of uneventfulness.

    You are beginning to sound detached. Maybe ready for winter break. Or something of the sort.
