Transcript "And if I'm elected I promise ..." Jim Cox persuades a student to support responsible student government by voting the Poston-Cox ticket, left. Attention focuses on election central as students count ballots after the polls close, below. Mike Driscoll eyes the results from the first balloting, right. Run-off Required in SA President's Race; Poston Defeats Driscoll What had started as a spirited battle for the Student Association presidency, fizzled into an anti-climatic run-off as the Richard Poston-Jim Cox ticket pulled off a win against the Mike Driscoll-Jerry Pickle slate. Four slates entered the president's race, but none polled the necessary majority of the 3,371 votes cast in the first balloting. The Poston-Cox ticket polled 35 percent of the votes for a plurality, Driscoll-Pickle drew 33 percent and the remaining 32 percent was split between the other two slates of Johnny Jones-Rich Stotter and Ransom Foreman-Judith Clark. The Greek caucus caused the most pre-election confusion as a final slate was not readied until the day of the election. A Driscoll-Jones ticket won the Greek backing, but Jones withdrew from the slate to run with Stotter. Driscoll then teamed with David Ami- don, but Amidon was stricken from the ballot the day before the election after the Election Commission ruled his grades were deficient. It was not until election day that Driscoll was teamed with Pickle. With a run-off in the making, Poston and Driscoll reorganized forces to finalize the selection of an SA president. Party platforms had blurred and campaign literature had found its way to the trash cans by the time students went to the polls to elect Poston and Cox. 66 Poston supporters set up election material in the UC, left, Driscoll and Poston meet face-to-face in an Omicron Delta Kappa debate, above. 67
