Flaw in SRJC voting system repaired
Yesterday, in another blog post, "Major flaw in SRJC online voting system?," I pointed out a bug in Santa Rosa Junior College's student election system that permitted people such as me who are not enrolled in any classes to vote. After posting the blog post and video here, I emailed the president of the Associated Students and the director and assistant director of Student Affairs. They replied promptly, and had the problem fixed before 9:00 a.m. Apparently, 83 votes that were made by non-students were cancelled, and the flaw that allowed us to vote was fixed. Student Affairs Director Robert Ethington said that "Computing Services guarantees that the integrity of the process is intact." Voting will close on Friday night.
