In fact, 'if the prediction of the RSG
president comes true, it's doubtful
there will be any lines at the polls
during, the entire two days of the elec-
tion. The reason, explained RSG
president Bob Milbrath, is that most
Rackham students simply won't vote.
MILBRATH SAID the turnout will be
low ;since only two students have
declared for th nine available seats

feelings (which) exist whereby people
just don't have much confidence in
political processes."

one write-in vote were elected to two

more than 7,000 enrolled in Rackham
