to vote today

Ruth Horning, an election officer at
Pioneer High in the Fourth Ward, said
voters weren't certain they could cast
ballots because they were politically
non-aligned.
Voters cited numerous reasons for
casting ballots in the primary election.
Steve McCarger, who voted at Slauson
School in the Fifth Ward, said there
were very few options available to
people in the election, and explained his
vote for Rep. John Anderson (R-Ill.)
saying that Anderson was a useful
alternative to either Carter or
Republican front-runner Ronald
Reagan.
JIM AND SALLY Conner, who also
cast ballots at Slauson School, said they
voted for Reagan and ex-CIA director
George Bush, respectively. Neither had
ever voted for a Republican candidate
before, they said, and characterized
their votes as anti-Carter, although
they both campaigned for him in the
1976 election.
. "I haven't made up my mind yet,"
said Ann Kagay as she prepared to en-
ter the Fifth Ward polling site at Dicken
School, "although I'll probably choose

Bush." She added that she really wants
to see Anderson win the November
election.
A couple who preferred to remain
anonymous, after leaving the Mack
School polling site in the First Ward,
said they voted for Bush. They said they
believed Bush was more competent
than either Carter or Reagan, and said
the Iranian crisis wouldn't beas serious
as it is now if Bush were president. As
former CIA director, Bush knows how
to handle inside information but Carter
doesn't, they said.
Irene Tader, an election worker at
Community High in the First Ward,
said "the turnout isn't heavy, but we
didn't know what to expect." Election
officials at East Quad in the Second
Ward said the light voter turnout there
was due to the lack of students living in

the tenant's money for several months,"
Bullard said. "There ought to be some
payment made to the tenant for use of
his money."
BULLARD ADDED that the addition
to the landlord's paperwork if the bill
were passed would be minimal. "The
only addition would be that the landlord
would have to fill in (on the form) the
amount of interest to be paid, and mail
it out with the damage deposit," he
said.
At least two Ann Arbor landlords
currently pay their tenants interest on
security deposits. Both McKinley Ren-
tals and Maize and Blue Rentals pay in-
terest, according to spokespersons for
the agencies. "We get nothing but sur-
prised reactions from tenants when we
inform them of this policy," said
Suzanne Felicks of Maize and Blue
Rentals.
One provision of the bill would allow
landlords with five rental units or fewer
in the same building to be excluded
from paying interest. Although Weaver
is in favor of the provision, he said he
still feels that the "medium-sized lan-
dlord"-those with more than five units
who only work part time-will get the
worst deal of all and could be forced to
increase their rents.
