New NCSA co-presidents, others elected

  • Post author:

After a weeklong campaign period, Novocollegians cast their ballots on Nov. 3 and 4 in Hamilton “Ham” Center to elect a slew of officials to the New College Student Alliance (NCSA). Following the first round of elections on the 3rd, first-year Michael Long and third-year Oliver Peckham were elected as NCSA co-presidents with 57% of the vote, defeating second-year Hannah Ackerman and third-year Crystal Miller in a runoff. A total of 285 students voted in the runoff, putting turnout at roughly 36 percent.

Other candidates seeking the office of the NCSA presidency included thesis student Richard Decal, who placed third in the general election, and second-year Reese Crispen & third-year Sivens Glaude, who placed fourth.

A proposed constitutional amendment on the ballot, which would have made approval of any changes to the NCSA constitution pursuant to approval from the New College Board of Trustees, was not approved: though the measure received 60% approval, a two-thirds majority was required to ensure its passage.

Other results from the election are as follows:
