Princeton students have voted to donate both the Fall 2009 Lawnparties main act and USG Senate Pilot Program funds to “Student-initiated service projects” over not donating the money at all or donating the funds to Annual Giving. At least, that’s according to a PDF released by the USG earlier today.
The catch, however, is that the document only shows first place votes – the actual vote will be tabulated by single transferable ballot (basically, everyone ranks their choices 1 through 3, and the people who voted the least popular item first have their second choice counted instead.) Pretty much, it doesn’t look like anything will change from these results, but if it does the USG will have once again found a way to bungle an election.
We go inside the numbers and break down how the vote happened after the jump.
