Student body presidential candidate, junior Jack Noble, was disqualified from the race on Monday night — a day before the election.
According to a statement from the Board of Elections, the Noble campaign was found guilty of five violations: three counts of misrepresentation, one count of falsification and a location violation.
“The Board does not lightly disqualify candidates from elections,” the BOE said in the statement. “Our decision here is guided solely by the points accumulated across several Hearings and in keeping with the Automatic Disqualification statuses of the Joint Governance Code.”
Four cases were brought against Noble by students claiming a total of six allegations: two by sophomore Brady Creef, one by junior Nick Sengstaken and one by junior Carter Vilim. Both Creef and Sengstaken endorsed Noble’s opponent, Ashton Martin, on Facebook.
Of the four cases, Noble was found guilty in three, giving him a total of 18 points, putting him over the 15 points that disqualify a candidate.
