The recent election for senior class president at Brawley Union High School was reminiscent of our last national election for president.
However, the biggest difference in the results lies in the fact that our high school made every attempt to prevent voting fraud from occurring by instituting labeled voting ballots. Each person had a named ballot insuring that only one vote came from each voting member in the class.
All the candidates are to be commended for both their campaign strategies and the high regard held for them by their peers. It is extraordinary that the race was so close.
There has been some criticism of the election and in a few cases a request for a recount. I am applauding the decision of staff, student body officers and administration for disallowing the recount as there was no proof of error.
