Student Senate ticket removed from upcoming election ballot

An Ohio University Student Senate ticket was removed from the 2020-2021 election ballot Thursday after an investigation found the ticket guilty of violating election procedures.

The ticket, ACTION OU, was found guilty of quid pro quo through providing appointments in exchange for support of the ticket, according to a press release from the Senate Judicial Panel. ACTION OU also provided misleading and inaccurate information to the Judicial Panel involving the existence of those mutualistic relationships.

All executive candidates on the ticket will be removed from the ballot, and the ticket as a whole will be disbanded. Any non-executive candidates who were formerly on the ticket will be allowed to run as independents, according to the release.
