IUSA denies two petitions

The IU Student Association Supreme Court ruled Tuesday to deny two petitions filed by the Engage ticket after last month’s election. 

In addition to the denial of appeals, the IUSA Election Commission released the vote totals for each ticket. Empower came in first with 1,800 votes, followed by Focus with 1,687 votes before deductions. After the commission issued deductions, Focus was pushed below Engage’s vote count of 1,658. The IGNITE and Psych Up tickets received 276 and 265 votes, respectively.

After the commission incorporated vote detractions, Engage was left with 1,496 votes, Focus with 1,122 votes, and Psych Up with 263 votes. IGNITE was disqualified, and Empower received no deductions. 

The final vote tallies have been submitted to the Supreme Court, which will then officially verify the election results.
