The Trustee Nominating Committee received challenges against three of four candidates. The committee found all challenges without merit and disqualified no candidates. After tabulation of the results, Mike Walsh was elected student trustee for 2008–2010.
The votes were tabulated by the Hare system, also known as instant run-off voting. In this system, voters cast ballots which rank candidates in order of preference. If no candidate has a majority in the first round of balloting, all candidates who earned too few votes to win a majority are disqualified and ballots which list them as the first choice are redistributed to the next highest choice that has not been disqualified. See the election rules for more detail.
