1Note: There were 8 open seats during this election, which made for an amazingly accurate outcome. Here is the breakdown for how each voting bloc ended up being represented in the Senate:
- FUCK gained 27.4% of first round votes and 25% of the Senate seats.
- Independents gained 26.8% of the first round votes and 25% of the Senate seats.
- Student Focus gained 24.0% of first round votes and 25% of the Senate seats.
- LEAD gained 21.9% of first round votes and 25% of the Senate seats.
Had there been only the 6 normal seats up for election, Eric Fox (Independent) and Nadeah Vali (LEAD) would not have been elected. Obviously four relatively equal voting blocs with 8 open seats is an ideal situation for a proportional representation system. Having 8 open seats made this a unique election but having four equally supported voting blocs made it even more unique. It did not last long however because FUCK went from being the most popular slate in one election to not existing in the next election. There were also no significant Independent or "third party" slates that ran in the next election either.
2Note: Both measures passed although I do not have any further information. More information on the ballot measures.
