Fullerton College: A Pictorial History

The empty poll booths in this October 1976 photo reflect that less than two percent of the student body voted in the Associated Student elections. That was an increase from the one percent, 203 students, who voted in the October 1975 election. Student apathy was further reflected in the lack of candidates, with a number of seats left unfilled, and when students did run for office, they frequently ran unopposed. A controversial Associated Students Constitutional Amendment, which would have allowed the Senate to appoint senators in the case of a lack of candidates, was narrowly defeated.
