What’s in a signature?

| Staff Reporter

Junior Trevor Mattea (bottom left) testified before Student Union Constitution Council late Tuesday night as one of his supporters held a sign that says “Give the People What They Want” with 900 tally marks. The Constitutional Council held a fact-finding session in order to define what constituted a valid signature and whether a petition can be split up into multiple items on the ballot. Mattea is being questioned for how he went about collecting the over 900 signatures needed to put his proposed amendments on the ballot for the upcoming SU election. His amendments seek to restructure various parts of SU. As of press time, Constitutional Council had yet to make a decision. The ballot is set to be finalized at noon today, and unless Constitutional Council makes a decision blocking the petition, the Election Commission will go ahead with the measure.
