I didn't follow student body elections at BYU at all. They seemed dumb. Every time someone won, the other side would accuse them of rule violations, and they'd have all the votes thrown out. Elections at GW are no different. GW's newspaper actually ran a campaign of their own declaring that "all the candidates are tools" and there is no difference between any of them. But then, something awesome happened. For those of you that watch Arrested Development, you know about Steve Holt's adventures in student elections. Some of the GW students decided to run a campaign for Steve Holt and... he won. a bunch of positions.
I also had to admire the creativity of one sign that said "SEX!!!!! Okay, now that i have your attention, vote John for president."
