LSA-SG PROPOSAL TO BE ON BALLOT
Voting procedure may

By DAVID MEYER
The LSA student government (LSA-
SG) approved Wednesday night a ballot
proposal that, if passed in the upcoming
election, would change voting
procedures in future elections.
The proposal, introduced by LSA-SG
Executive Council Member Rasool Ab-
dul-Raheem, would end the use of
preferential voting and replace it with
approval voting. Under the current
voting system, students number their
15 choices for the LSA-SG executive
council in order of preference, and each
vote is then weighed accordingly. Un-
der the approval system, however,

each one of the student's votes would
recieve equal consideration.
ANOTHER BALLOT proposal ap-
proved by LSA-SG at the weekly.
meeting seeks to raise the current LSA
student government fee from 50 cents to
75 cents.
LSA-SG Vice-President Kathy
Friedman proposed four more ballot
proposals, which were approved at
Wednesday's meeting. They include:
The extension of drop/add deadlines
and pass/fail modifier deadlines: the
inclusion of student representatives on
the LSA Academic Actions Committee;
the creation of a program to aid studen-
ts in filling out graduate school ap-

plications; and, the organization of a
uniform program for training and
supervising graduate teaching
assistants.
In other action, the council also
allocated a total $1,703 in varying
amounts to the following ten student
organizations: The Undergraduate
Politial Science Association, The Union
of Students for Israel, Women in Action,
