As University students watched a political
drama unfold on Election night, supporters of
Texas Gov. George W. Bush remain opti-
mistic, while students loyal to Vice President
Al Gore are worrying about the outcome.
"We're keeping our fingers crossed," said
LSA junior Alicia Johnson, a member of the
college Democrats.
But Bush supporters do not consider a loss
likely.
"I think Bush is going to get Florida
because he was ahead last night," said LSA
freshman Nicole Babcock, co-chair of the
Michigan College Republicans Elections
Committee.
The night took students through a roller-
coaster of emotions, with many not realizing
that the uncertainty of the race until this morn-
ing.

"We all went to bed happy" Babcock said.
"And then we woke up and everything
changed," said Babcock, who had been with
her family Tuesday night watching the elec-
tion returns.
An hour after networks declared Bush the
president at 2:30 a.m., a recount was ordered
in Florida, leaving the outcome of the presi-
dential race uncertain.
Earlier in the night Florida was called for
Gore, but the projection was recalled and the
state was later called for Bush.
"I was kind of distraught when they took
Florida away from Gore. My heart was in my
throat," LSA junior Traci Johnson said.
"Because I'm a minority and a woman I real-
ly want Gore to win. Gore has people like me
in mind," she said.
Alicia Johnson had gathered with other fel-
low Democrats to watch the elections in the
Michigan League.
With the race still uncertain at 12:30 a.m.,

)ptimistic
the group was forced to relocate to the Michi-
gan Union. At 2:15 a.m. they had to again
relocate, this time to an apartment.
After Bush was projected to be the winner
in Florida, Johnson said that the Democrats
were "praying for a miracle and the miracle
happened," adding that "if Bush wins we've
elected somebody who didn't have a majority
of the vote and he obviously doesn't have -a
mandate."
One Gore supporter, LSA sophomore
Atishay Chopra, said he plans to gather with
his housemates toisorrow afternoon to watch
the outcome of the recount in Florida.
He did not hesitate to explain the current
confusion in Florida.
"Nader was the only reason Gore didn't
win," Chopra said.
One Green supporter, Sandy Dear, of Ypsi-
lanti, while admitting that she preferred Gore
over Bush, said she was "excited that they
were even mentioning Nader" on television

i

The Orlando Sentinel was one of many newspapers trying to keep up with the latest news during
Tuesday's night's volatile election coverage. Here four editions display conflicting headlines.

I ELECTION
Continued from Page1:A
"We've received literally thousands of tele-
phone calls and inquiries and reports of irreg-
ularities like ballots appearing and
disappearing, voter intimidation and the totals
of this election sort of mysteriously disappear-
ing and growing overnight," state Democratic
Party chairman Bob Poe said.
Jesse Jackson said he got calls on Election
Day complaining that blacks had difficulty
voting in Florida and other Southern states.
He said sonse voters were told there were no
more ballots, orsthat polls were closed.
What we need is not just a recount by
hand, but also a thorough investigation," Jack-
son said.
NAACP President Kweisi Mfume said lse
has asked the Justice Department to investi-
gate alleged election irregularities affecting
trinority voting. He also wants the govern-
ment to oversee the recount.
"We are not suggesting foul play, but we are
very much concerned that foul play can hap-
pen," he said in a statement.
Separately. Democratic officials and voters

complained about the way ballots in Palm
Beach County were arranged. Voters punched
holes in the middle of the ballot, while candi-
dates were alternately listed to the left and
then the right. County officials also said
19,120 ballots in the presidential race were
tossed out because more than one candidate
was picked.
"It was virtually impossible to know who
you voted for," said Mark Hirsch, a 30-year-
old business executive who voted for Green
Party candidate Ralph Nader.
Some Gore supporters said they feared
they mistakenly voted for Reform Party can-
didate Pat Buchanan. Gore carried the county
by more thani 110,000 votes, but the 3,407
votes for Buchanan were by far the most of
any Florida county, and almost 20 percent of
his total vote in the state.
Republicans said the ballot was approved by
Palm Beach County Supervisor of Elections
Theresa LePore, a Democrat.
Jeb Bush said he has seen nothing that indi-
cates fraud, and pledged a fair recount.
"Voter fraud in our state is a felony, and
guilty parties will be prosecuted to the fullest
extent of the law," he said.

board, he does not think they made
much of a difference.
"I don't know if they affected any-
thing one way or another. Whether
they ran or not, we probably would
have had the same results, just a little
bit higher of numbers' Deitch said.
ISA senior Scott Trudeau, who ran
with the Green Party, said he was not
surprised by the results.
"As far as what the results mean, it
is difficult for a student to run a cam-
paign while taking classes," Trudeau
said. "But I thought I brought a lot of
issues to light:'
One of those issues Trudeau and the
other two students running for seats
were campaigning for was the right for
a student to be on the board.
"It's hard to gauge whether we made
much of a difference in this area: I
think the sentiment is still there and it
is ny experience that it's something
most students do want," Trudeau said,
McGowan said she is glad both she
and Deitch were re-elected so the
board can move forward in defending
the University two lawsuits question-
ing the use of affirmative action i the
its admissions policies.
"What we're doing is very impor-
tant and we're doing the right thing.
Im glad the University can keep its
eye on the ball and doesn't have to be
distracted by arguments on whethpr
the board agrees with the Uiversity's
policy," McGowan said.
Deitch is happy he will have the
chance to work with the same group
for at least the next two years.
"We have been effective and we're a
cohesive group. I'm delighted we'll be
able to work together still," Deitch
said.
"I don't know where I'll be in two
years, and (the board of regents) may
not be the best place for me at that
time," Trudeau said.
Trudeau said he is not sure if he will
run for the board again in two years.

. "I'm not greatly surprised," Ballenger
said. "It appears they have picked up a

With two races still undecided as of
last night, Democrats had overturned
two House seats not enough to
