LOCAL/S TATE

SECOUNT
Continued from Page 1
but gave Harris the authority to accept
or reject follow-up manual recount
totals.
Lewis' decision was a setback for
the vice president, who wanted a clear
order erasing yesterday's deadline. His
lawyers found solace in Lewis urging
larris to consider "all appropriate
cts and circumstances" when recount
totals are filed.
In another blow for Gore, Democra-
tic-leaning Miami-Dade County
refused his request for a recount and a
second, Broward, also was inclined to
reject Gore's request. A third jurisdic-
tion, Volusia County, finished its
recount yesterday with gains for Gore.
A fourth county, Palm Beach, begins
its recounts today and Democrats hope
cut deeply into Bush's lead there.
Harris said she will require counties
filing late recount numbers to explain
in writing by 2 p.m. today why new
vote totals should be accepted.
"Unless I determine, in the exercise of
my discretion, that these facts and cir-
cumstances ... justify an amendment
to today's official returns" the totals
will stand, she said.
Gore decided to hold off an appeal
Lewis' ruling and press forward
with recounts in four Democratic-lean-
ing counties. Gore's advisers hope
Harris will approve the hand-counted
ballots -- though they expect the
worst- and are prepared to appeal if
she does not.
"If the secretary of state arbitrarily
refuses to accept the amended returns

made up now, the major difficulty
is getting them to log on," she said.
Election Chair Stephen Lund said
he agrees that students who are
oing to vote probably already
ow who they're going to vote for,
but he does not think the loss of
last minute campaigning on the
Diag because of inclement weather
will hinder any overall election

based on the recount and violates what
this court has ruled ... which is to
accept those results unless she has good
reason not to, then we will be back in
court," said a new member of Gore's
massive legal team, David Boies.
With Harris' announcement, the bat-
tle lines were clearly drawn: Bush's
team says the manual recounts are con-
ducted with no set standards in Democ-
ratic-leaning counties with the sole
purpose of pushing Gore ahead. The
vice president's team argues that the
painstaking process is the only way to
ensure that every Florida voter is heard.
The spotlight will remain on Harris
as she decides whether to accept the
county recounts. Another pivot point is
Friday, when overseas ballots are due
and counting begins.
The race tumbled to the courts after
a statewide machine recount trimmed
Bush's lead from 1,784 votes to a few
hundred, prompting Gore to push for
painstaking manual recounts and Bush
to fight them in courts of law and pub-
lic opinion.
Officials in two counties tabulated
ballots by hand yesterday, with action
in two other jurisdictions pending.
Shoving matches and shouting fits
punctuated the action inside and out-
side Florida's courtrooms. Jeb Bush
said things were getting "nerve-rack-
ing" throughout his state.
"I can't even walk around outside
now," he said at a town hall meeting 60
miles northwest of Tallahassee.
President Clinton weighed in from
Air Force One, telling AP reporters he
hopes the dispute doesn't lead to a
presidency crippled by controversy.

Watch out for Winter

The Michigan Daily - Wednesday, November 15, 2000 - 7

Members of the Defend Affirmative Action Party
believe they are the primary leaders on the assembly
DAAP candidate Neal Lyons said.
DA AP "has been the main driving force around-.
every issue that has come past the assembly," Lyons.
Ssaid.
DAAP members said if they were to gain the majority;
of the assembly in the fall elections, they could accom--
plish more in regard to students' rights.
"If we were the numerically dominant party it would'
eliminate many obstacles," party founder Jessica Curtin
said.
The Michigan Party believes the assembly is divided
in what it wants to accomplish, party head Doug Tietz-
said.
"Everyone has their own self interest in mind - we
just can't seem to get anything done." said Tietz, who is-
running for an LSA seat.
Michigan Party candidate Chuck Wang said the
party would work to get the assembly operating togeth-'.
c.-
"We need to unify MSA in getting things accom
plished," Wang said.
Independent candidate Tony Goodman said there is.
not much improvement necessary in leadership of the
assembly.
"I think we have a great president this year," he said.
Fellow independent Zack Slates said he disagrees and
thinks Ilideki's leadership has gotten better, but MSA
still has work to do.
"The assembly is distanced from the student body,"
Slates said. "It needs to be more accessible to stu-
dents.
Independent candidate Dan Barrera said he believes
that individual agendas detract from MSA leadership
but there is no single solution.
"All the reps have their own goals," Barrera said.
"It's like any government," he said. "There's no one
thing leadership can do to make it more cohesive."

Online resources for class selection
include tools from the MSA Website to the
LSA Online Course Guide. As MSA com-
munications chair, LSA sophomore Matt
Nolan said that "Advice Online" on the
MSA site has gotten more than 94,000 hits
since it went online April 9, 1997.
When considering the best aspect of
"Advice Online," Nolan said he looks for-
ward to "comparing estimated grades
between classes. It's also nice to see how
GSls are rated."
The MSA site issues report card-like rat-
ings that rank professors and GSIs in under-
graduate and graduate schools. Rankings

are based upon evaluation forms filled out
by students at the end of the term.
"While our staff would be the first to
admit that there are certain drawbacks to
these forms, they remain a useful resource
for gauging the performance of instructors
at our large university," according to the
MSA Website. "The evaluations, as repro-
duced by Advice Online, can be extremely
useful in helping students search for high
quality courses."
"I think a professor makes you enjoy or
not enjoy a class. A poor professor can
make the best material horrible," first-year
Law student Roger Stetson said.

results.
Lund, an LSA sophomore, said
he predicts a normal voter turnout
with "a lot of freshman and the
numbers declining every year after
that."
Lund said he also does not think
voter fraud will be a problem this
time around, as it was during the
1999 Winter MSA election.
Seventy-four fraudulent votes
were cast in that election from a
computer at Mary Markley Resi-

dence Hall, leading to a partial
revote.
Information and Technology
Division Webmaster Kevin
McGowen said it is possible for
ITD to ensure that voter fraud won't
happen again by using a snapshot
method of monitoring the polling
results.
McGowen said students who
have voted will receive an e-mail
confirming their vote. "If they
didn't vote, they should reply to the

e-mail," he said.
McGowen said he suggests stu-
dents to change login passwords for
the elections. "It all hinges on your
unigname and password,"
McGowen said, referring to how
students can protect themselves and
the integrity of the election pro-
ceedings.
Candidates are confident that
voter fraud will not damage their
totals, but they do think the weather
will play a role in not only discour-

aging voters but also candidates. "I
was going to camp out on the Diag
but with this weather that won't be
happening," Cash said.
Fellow Blue Party candidate Matt
Nolan said he agrees the weather may
pose a nuisance for last minute cam-
paign efforts.
"It's gonna be a lot harder to play
music on the Diag when no one
wants to put their boombox in the
snow." but he is confident that it
will not discourage those who truly

Independent candidate Tony
Goodman said he has been doing all
he can from putting up signs to send-
ing mass e-mails, but he still
believes regardless of the weather,,
"It's gonna be hard to win as an
independent. I guess I'll find out
Saturday."The polls will close at
11:59 p.m. tomorrow night. Students'
interested in voting need to go to
