Transcript Allan Soffar Contests Election in Student Court; wins Suit and Senate Seat Bo Smith, chairman of the election commission concedes to the first two points of Soffar's petition before the court. Ballots cast in this year's Student Association election were impounded by the Student Court for investigation on a charge that provisions of the election code were violated. Eugene Cook, chief justice of the court, issued the order after Allan Soffar, candidate for the Graduate School senate seat, made the charge. In the first election, Soffar was defeated by Richard Poston by one vote, 27-26. Glen Adams received 30 votes to win the other graduate seat. Soffar requested that the election be voided on two counts: there is no conclusive method of determining whether a student has voted in his proper college and there is no way under the existing code to invalidate a ballot because a student voted in the wrong college. Former SA President Tom Fowler, one of four witnesses called by Soffar's attorneys, testified that he had inadvertently voted in the wrong college. Another witness, Cay Willis, testified that she saw Lynn Pitman vote after the polls should have been closed. The decision of the court was made in favor of Soffar. A special election was called in which Soffar defeated Poston by a six-vote margin, 45-39. Ken Dobbs, John Daigle, Cougar editor, and Larry Bass, law student, sit behind Jim Evans, SA attorney general, (above) while he listens to the chief justice remonstrate Evans for not consulting more members of the election commission in preparing a report for the court (below). 54 Ken Dobbs, Allan Soffar, and Mike Driscoll discuss the suit during a recess. 55
