At a USAC meeting on Nov. 5, council members decided to set new regulations for the upcoming divestment resolution meeting, including a two-hour time limit for public comments and increased restrictions on which members of the press and public can attend the meeting. How do you feel about this matter?
  • The new restrictions don't allow all students at UCLA to have an equal voice in decisions made by their student government. (49%, 100 Votes)
  • The new restrictions are necessary to prevent the high levels of animosity that arose from last year's divestment resolution. (40%, 81 Votes)
  • The council should not have enacted these new restrictions because while they could potentially inhibit some of the controversy from last year's resolution, there is no guarantee of that. (6%, 12 Votes)
  • I don't know how I feel about this matter. (5%, 12 Votes)

At a USAC meeting on Oct. 28, council unanimously voted to decrease Student Organizations Operational Fund allocations for student clubs by about $100 this year. Each club that applied for SOOF funds this year will receive on average about $230 to host retreats, advertise for their club, etc. How do you feel about this matter?
  • Even though some student groups don't spend the full amount of money allocated to them, other groups are suffering under the cuts, signifying a need to more accurately distribute funds. (45%, 94 Votes)
  • 75 percent of student groups don't end up spending the money allocated to them, so the decrease won't have substantial effects on the groups. (26%, 54 Votes)
  • Student groups rely on these funds to operate successfully, the drop in funding will curtail their ability to put on campus events and other programs. (23%, 48 Votes)
  • I don't know how I feel about this matter. (6%, 14 Votes)

During this month's fall special election, all five candidates ran as independents, unaffiliated with any slate. But the majority of the candidates ran in two-person teams. How do you feel about this matter?
  • Candidates that ran with a running mate were essentially the same thing as a slate, and perpetuated slate politics in elections. (58%, 108 Votes)
  • Even though the candidates had running mates that functioned similarly to slates, they still decreased the amount of traditional slate politics involved in elections. (26%, 49 Votes)
  • I don't know how I feel about this matter. (11%, 21 Votes)
  • The candidates were independent and free from slate politics. (5%, 9 Votes)
