polls to ensure that
everybody who is not to go

is to have a nonpar-
tisan presence at the
polls in case con- Co
flicts emerge. "We
know that there is a
great deal of potential for it not to go
smoothly," Woiwode said.
Not all polling conflicts, how-
ever, are accidental, and intentional
deception has occurred in the past.
Students are sometimes told false-
ly, for instance, that they are not
allowed to vote in a town that isn't
their home. "That's what we're try-
ing to stop, to just clarify the process

and make sure everyone's informed
in this election," Woiwode added.
Voice Your Vote is also driving
both Ann Arbor residents from their
homes to the polls and students who
have gone to the wrong polling place
to the correct location.
In addition, the Alpha Iota Omi-
cron fraternity is teaming up with

wrong information to voters by phone,
Loehndorf said.
"We just had a set of calls today
where people were told their polling
places had changed, and this is in a very
Democratic precinct," she said. "We've
heard reports of people with Kerry but-
tons collecting absentee ballots. ... We
don't have any people collecting absen-
tee ballots."
To guard against intimidation
and other wrongdoing at the polls,
Loehndorf said the county Demo-
cratic Party has registered about 750
poll watchers.
"They're going to be in heavy
Democratic areas," she said. "Our
goal is just to make sure our folks
are allowed to vote."
Jenni Garrison, executive director
of the Palm Beach County Republi-
can Party, said Loehndorf's charges
were false. Garrison said the elec-
toral process and the new touch-
screen voting machines are fair and
accurate, and predicted that any
problems in today's election would
be caused by the Democrats.
"The Democrats are disgusting in
the tricks and deception that they're
creating in this election," Garrison

said. "The problem is going to be
the Democrats and their tricks and
shenanigans, to try to encourage
people to vote who aren't qualified
to vote, or who have already voted
absentee. ... We intend to prevent
them from getting away with it."
Still, some county residents wor-
ried that the Florida election could
be disrupted by factors outside the
bounds of partisanship - such as
the state's disproportionately large
elderly population.
"There are so many elderly people,
and a lot of them can't see, so there
could be mistakes," said Lake Worth
resident Michelle Merola.
Merola praised Florida's touch-
screen electronic voting machines,
which Loehndorf said have been
reported to display votes for Bush
after voters have attempted to select
Kerry.
Merola said she has used the
machines before and found them
easier to understand than any other
voting method.
Still, while Merola said she did
not expect any trouble for herself
at the polls, she was not confident
that today's vote would go well for
Florida.
"I just don't see it going too smooth-
ly," Merola said.

PROPOSAL
Continued from page 1
under a similar policy used four years
ago, the system had twice as many people
as it does now.
In order to let freshmen explore the
chapters before they rush, the council
heads proposed giving cards to them
as a way of letting them visit parties
and lending some control over who
still comes in. The cards would be
distributed at parties by fraternities
members.
Another proposal raised was a policy
that would make people attending Greek
parties purchase and bring their own
alcohol to fraternity houses. No chapter
would provide alcohol, although individ-
ual brothers could purchase and distrib-
ute their own drinks with their personal
funds.
Currently, students attending official
fraternity parties are supposed to bring
their own alcohol but this policy is not
inforced.
The new proposal is specifically
designed to decrease the liability frater-
nities face from underage drinking and
injury lawsuits. How much an individual
can consumewoulddepend onhowmuch
that person brings into a party.
For safety reasons, only plastic bot-
tles would be allowed. Such drinks

would be checked at the door where
they would be marked with a sticker,
which would verify that alcohol is
brought in from outside.
Going a step further to ensure safe-
ty, "sober monitors" would make sure
that no drinks were left unattended
once inside. Currently, the company
that insures fraternities says that all
parties have to have attendees bring
their own alcohol. The proposed
reforms would aim to bring fraterni-
ties in line with the insurance compa-
ny's policy, the council said.
The danger in being outside of that
policy is that lawsuits amounting to thou-
sands of dollars -and sometimes higher
- can be brought against the fraterni-
ties without insurance coverage, making
members, if they want to drink, pay the
settlement.
Some people voiced their concern
that the new policy would contribute to
a higher rate of minors-in-possession-of-
alcohol infractions among party attend-
ees, which the council heads countered
by saying they would not be responsible
for MIPs if underage people bought their
own alcohol.
Panhel and IFC will meet later this
week and present their findings on noon
Sunday at the fraternity Alpha Delta Phi.
Proposed changes will be voted on next
week.

MONITORS

ers. Democratic spokespeople said in previous interviews that
Republicans would try to intimidate student and minority vot-
ers today in an attempt to discourage people from voting.
Moon said all lawyers that will be present at sites will be
volunteers.
The Republican Party willhave poll challengers at precincts
to check for any problems and make sure that no political
advertising is being done within 100 yards of the polling site,
Paolino said. They will not be sending lawyers to the polls.
"The Democrats have definitely made this an election
about lawyers. We will combat any Democrat dirty tricks by
having Republican lawyers standing by," Paolino said.
the michigan daily , k

Nonpartisan organizations will have poll monitors at sites
that they perceive fostered discrimination against voters in
past elections.
The Michigan Student Assembly's Voice Your Vote Com-
mission will have a poll monitor at every predominantly
student precinct, such as the Michigan Union and Bursley
Residence Hall, said Pete Woiwode, co-chair of the commis-
sion
If the problem is unsolved at the polling site, volunteers
can then call a legal team.
"Volunteers will call a hotline that goes to a legal team
and report the incident. If legal action is necessary, someone
will come by and make sure everything gets figured out,"
Woiwode added.
Voice Your Vote is working with Election Protection, a

nonpartisan group that will be training volunteers to monitor in precincts that are required to provide this service,
polls. Volunteers have been trained to provide voters with a and if voters who qualify for provisional ballots receive
