The Alligator really downplayed this fall's SG election turnout. Considering the horrible weather, lack of real competition and limited campaigning, it was impressive to see this election garner one of the highest turnouts in fall campaign history. In fact, this year's turnout set a record for normal fall election turnout.

Last year's fall election saw higher numbers only because of a vice-president replacement race. While it is true that only a minority of students took part in elections, we should applaud Supervisor of Elections Sarah Krantz for her efforts this fall.

SG isn't perfect, but this fall's turnout is an indication that at least we are heading in the right direction in helping to get students involved and interested in the happenings here on campus.
