as been planning to revamp
y housing. Under the Residen-

tial Life Initiatives, the office has con-
ducted several focus groups and surveys
involving students, faculty and staff This
information has influenced the architec-
tural designs ofthe buildings. "It has a lot
student input in it," Keller said.
Over the past few months, adminis-
trators have continually mentioned these
changes. Coleman cited it in her address
kicking off the University's large-scale
fundraising campaign this April, stating
that residence hall renewal is crucial to
"attracting the best and brightest stu-
dents."
The changes result from persistent
problems in University housing, accord-
ing to the RLI Web site. While research-
ing housing needs, administrators saw
a significant need for more space and
electrical services. Dining facilities, they
found, were out of date, and academic
space was inadequate.

bors' yards and in the city streets,"
O'Dell said.
Todd Paron, one of the owners of
Oppenheimer Properties, Inc., said the
rental company has not had many prob-
lems with tenants being ticketed.
Paron only recalled one incident
involving the littering citation. "We
just called the guys and told them they
had 24 hours to clean it up," he said.
"Everyone has been pretty responsible
about cleaning up."
Paron said he approves of the tickets
because it will help keep the campus
and the city clean, but overall he thinks
AAPD has been "aggressive" in their
trash ticketing so far.
"I think it is a good idea, though,
because it does keep the properties
clean," he said. "We haven't been too
aggressive over here on calling the ten-
ants because we haven't had that many
tickets."
Much of what the Community Stan-
dards Unit does is not in response to
complaints, O'Dell said. The officers
are permitted to issue a warning or a
ticket based on their own observations.
"One of the things that the officers
will do is - say they notice a house in
the 100 block of a street - they will
check all of the houses on the same
block too as part of enforcement fair-
ness," O'Dell added.
No warnings or tickets have been
issued at the golf course or other tail-
gate sites because they employ their
own crews to clean up the area, O'Dell
said.

an said the University is con-

tinuing to work on four initiatives put
forward in April. The initiatives focus on
more interdisciplinary courses, the for-
mation of a center for the study of ethi-
cal issues in the public domain, creation
of a prototype for affordable health care
and improvement of residential life on
campus.
"The University of Michigan will
continue to define the great public uni-
versity,"Coleman said.

A yard on the corner of Division and Hill Streets was strewn with gar-
bage yesterday. Last weekend AAPD fined three houses for littering.

VOTING
Continued from page 1
to submit absentee ballots without pro-
viding an excuse, which is currently
required under state law. This would
have a minimal impact on students, for
whom school is a legitimate excuse for
not being present at their designated
polling places on Election Day. The bill
would allow citizens who are unable
to vote in person to participate in their
local elections.
Foley said many students are
unaware that as a result of a 2000 law,
the address on their driver's licenses
must match the address on their Voter
Identification Cards.
Referring to the 2000 law, Brater said,
"That had the intended consequence
of disenfranchising many students on
Michigan campuses." Public Act 118,
enacted shortly before the 2000 elec-
tions, was challenged four years ago by
MSA and five other student assemblies,
but it passed legal muster in court.
Brater accused former state Sen.
Mike Rogers, whose district included
the Michigan State University campus,
of sponsoring the act to intentionally

depress the student vote. In the 2000
elections, Rogers won a seat in the U.S.
House by a narrow margin of victory.
Brater attributed Rogers's victory to the
negative effect his legislation had on
the participation of MSU students.
By the same token, Brater, who is
up for re-election in 2006, and another
sponsor of the bill, state Sen. Virgil
Bernero (D-Lansing), both could bene-
fit from the package if it has its intended
effect of increasing rates of voting on
college campuses.
Students can check if they are regis-
tered to vote in Michigan by going to
www.sospublius.org. If they are regis-
tered, the website will tell the address
of their polling location.
Those not registered to vote in Ann
Arbor, including first-time voters and
students registered elsewhere, can do so
at the City Clerk's Office on the second
floor of City Hall at 100 N. Fifth Ave.
Mail-in registration forms are available
at www.michigan.gov/sos. Completed
forms should be mailed to the City
Clerk's Office.
Students who wish to participate in
their hometown elections may either
register at or submit the mail-in form to

their local clerk's office. First-time vot-
ers who pursue the latter option forfeit
the right to submit an absentee ballot.
All newly registered voters and those
who have changed their addresses
should receive their voter I.D. cards in
the mail within three weeks of complet-
ing the registration process. Students
who do not receive their I.D. cards
within three weeks should contact the
clerk's office of the city where they reg-
istered to vote.
"There are many hindrances to vot-
ing if you're a student," Skiles said. But
she said that it is misconception that the
registration process is difficult.
"It's easy because of the concerted
effort that students are making to reg-
ister voters," she said. "Registering to
vote is a really simple process. It takes
maybe 30 seconds to one minute to fill
in your address and sign the form."
"The problem is the lack of education
of what the specific rules are," Foley
said. "You have to really seek out the
specific rules."
But he added that although there may
be security reasons for current voting
laws, Brater's proposed legislation "cer-
tainly simplifies" the voting process.
