Erik Houser won the Student Assembly senate seat for the class of 2010 Thursday, capturing 79 percent in a revote. Less than 200 people voted.
A voting glitch compromised the results of the 2010 senate race in the March 26 elections. The College of William and Mary’s online voting system allowed graduate students to vote in undergraduate senate races.
Houser ran uncontested for the seat after Eric Newman ’10 withdrew from the race.
Houser, whose initial campaign was based on apathy towards the SA, has taken the position that he wants to help facilitate dialogue between the College and SA.
He joins newly elected 2010 Sen. Jim Dunleavey and re-elected Sens. Ross Gillingham and Steven Nelson.
