UA set to try online voting, again |The Tuscaloosa News | Tuscaloosa, AL

UA set to try online voting, again :
Back in 2003, the person who cast nearly 4,500 fraudulent votes in that year's student government elections was successful in getting online ballots banished from the University of Alabama.

Next month, after a six-year hiatus, UA officials will try again with Internet voting. Students can begin campaigning for SGA offices Friday, with elections to be held March 3-4.

Two factors should make next month's student government elections different from the failed 2003 election. For one, technology is better, and, second, an off-campus company that specializes in online elections will manage the process, said Kelli Knox-Hall, one of two staff members with the Ferguson Center who directs Election Board business.
