Some Notes about the above table:


Some facts...

As of February 2013, there have been ten ASUCD President/Vice-President Elections using Choice Voting. Five executive elections have had 3 tickets on the ballot, four executive elections have had 2 tickets on the ballot and one executive election had only 1 ticket on the ballot. The Winter 2010 and Winter 2013 elections were the only executive elections that actually went to a second round. In all other elections the winning ticket received a majority of the votes in the first round. In fact, after the third place ticket was eliminated in the Winter 2010 election, neither of the two remaining tickets met the threshold because the voters for the third place ticket split their second place rankings fairly evenly among the two remaining tickets and not ranking either remaining ticket.

For more information on past ASUCD Presidents there is more information on the applicable Daviswiki.org page.
