"(NASS is) very interested in what happened
this last election," Phillips said. "They wanted
to see what happened - what worked and what
NASS has not yet responded to the sugges-
tions, Phillips added.
"They were very open to our recommenda-
tions. We'll have to see what they say when we
An estimated 42 percent of 18- to 24-year olds
voted in 2005, almost 20 points below the national
turnout of 60 percent. But an IOP poll taken last
September reported that 92 percent of college stu-
dents believed their peers would vote if the absen-
tee registration and voting process were easier.
In Michigan, State Sen. Liz Brater (D-Ann
Arbor) has re-introduced legislation that would
eliminate laws requiring first-time voters to reg-
ister or vote in person.
"I know there are states that have a lot eas-
ier registration," Brater said. "There are many
examples of states that have better voting sys-
tems than Michigan."
Brater cited Oregon, which is the only state
that conducts elections exclusively by mail. Ore-
gon had the highest voter turnout in the nation
The legislation that created the absentee-vot-
ing rules that require a voter to either register
or vote in person were sponsored by U.S. Rep.
Mike Rogers (R-Mich.), then a state senator, in
1998. Brater said Rogers's intent was to suppress
voting on college campuses.
Rogers spokeswoman Sylvia Warner said the
Secretary of State requested that Rogers introduce
the bill to comply with 1993's National Voter Reg-
istration Act, which requires each state to maintain
a single voter database. Because Michigan already
had a database of registered drivers' licenses, it
decided to also use that database for voters.
"It's actually to make it easier for you," said
Kelly Chesney, a spokeswoman for the Michigan
Secretary of State. "Now when you change your
driver's license, your voting registration moves
with you. Often, people forget to take care of
their voting registration when they move."
The main reason first-time voters either have
to vote or register in person is to establish iden-
tity, Chesney said.
"If we can't verify identity, how do we know
we have a Michigan voter?" she said.
The Motor Voter act was intended to ensure
everyone had the opportunity to vote fairly, War-
ner said, adding that it prevents voter fraud.
Some say voter fraud is a risk of relaxing
absentee voting laws, because election offi-
cials have less control over what people do
with their ballots when they mail them in.
For example, looser laws could increase the
likelihood of people selling their votes.
"We're all for preventing voting fraud," Phil-
lips said, "but we think you have to strike the
balance and we think we have."
The Michigan Student Assembly's Voice Your
Vote Commission is attempting to contact Brater
to talk about changing Michigan absentee laws,
co-chair Ben Rattner said.
"We want to see what the hang-ups are, what
we as students can help with," he said.
During last fall's presidential election, former
Voice Your Vote co-chair Mike Forster had first-
hand experience with people who were confused
by Michigan voting laws.
"Voting laws in Michigan are really anti-stu-
dent in general," he said. "I talked to a lot of
people who had problems."

said. Although there is no field on the
undergraduate application to indicate a
parent's employment at the University,
a student may choose to note such a con-
nection in the sections asking for par-
ents' occupations or in an essay or letter
Peterson said faculty and staff,
like alumni, often have high levels of
engagement with the University.
"I think it is appropriate to recognize,
when we can, that students come from
that kind of tie to the University," Peter-
Although the University informally
gives extra consideration to children of
employees, Peterson said it is a small
factor that does not heavily weigh on
the admissions process, unlike at other
Sarah Zearfoss, assistant dean of the
Law School, agreed that students with
parents employed by the University are
likely to have a strong connection to the
school, which could help their applica-
tions. However, she added that this is
only one aspect of the application, and it
would not be a strong factor in choosing
to admit a student.
In contrast, the application for George
Washington University asks specifically
if a student's parents work for GWU, and
this is taken into account when making
admissions decisions. But GWU Direc-
tor of Admissions Kathryn Napper said
that, as at the University of Michigan,
"it is not an overriding factor."
"We are most interested in the aca-
demic preparedness of an applicant,"
The Medical School's application
does ask for any "family relationship" an
applicant might have with the University.
But a relationship does not guarantee
an admissions interview, said Assistant
Director of Admissions Robert Ruiz, nor
does the Medical School offer special
scholarships to these students.
"It's in the applicant's best inter-
est to give us as much information
as he can," Ruiz said. He added that
it would be beneficial for a student
to indicate any relationship with the
University, but that it would weigh
only as much as other types of links
to the school, such as residence in
the state of Michigan or a strong
desire to be in the state.
Having parents employed by the
University is "not a compelling or over-
whelming consideration," Ruiz said.
At many of the universities sur-
veyed by the Chronicle, children of
university employees also receive
substantial tuition benefits. At
GWU such students attend the col-
lege tuition-free, which saves them
about $34,000 a year.
Lester Monts, senior vice provost
for academic affairs, acknowledged
that admissions and tuition benefits
for children of employees are impor-
tant incentives for many job appli-
cants, and that the issue arises often
in the hiring process. But Monts said
he does not believe that the Univer-
sity's decision to abstain from offer-
ing such benefits hurts faculty and
"I think we have a world-class
faculty, and there are many other
reasons why faculty choose to come
here," he said.
But History Prof. Sonya Rose, chair
of the LSA history department, said
the issue can be a major roadblock in
hiring senior faculty. Professors with
older children, some of whom come
from private institutions that do offer
tuition benefits, are more hesitant to
take jobs at the University when they
hear that they will not receive such
perks, she said.

been allowed to continue their athletic
careers," Evelyn said. "But he is most
concerned about the young lady in this
case, and basketball will take care of
Evelyn said no deal was made with
the University if Horton pled guilty
that would allow him to return to the
"(The University) is going to make
its decision independent of what we
did," Evelyn said. "And that is the
way it should be."
Amaker said he is anxious for Hor-
ton to return to the court but does not
know when or if that would happen.
"He is a young man that I care a
great deal about, and I'd like to think
I'm fairly close with," Amaker said.
"I'm disappointed that we haven't
had him. So we'll be welcoming
him back at some point. Who knows
when that will be, but when that takes
shape, we will certainly welcome him
back with open arms."
None of Horton's teammates or
coaches attended the pre-trial hear-
"There was no conscious effort to
have someone or not have someone
there," Amaker said. "There was no
talk about that, at least that I was
