The results of Wednesday’s Student Government election are in question after illegitimate voting was brought to the attention of the administration.
Students from Topeka West and Highland Park may have gained access to the Google survey used for the official voting and cast votes. A few external students have admitted to voting in Topeka High’s election, but there is no no report of how they obtained the voting link or how illegitimate votes impacted the results.
The results as initially announced are redacted and remain in a pending status. The voting process and results of the voting are not generally transparent to the students; teachers and administration are in charge of student elections and vote tallies are never reported. An investigation is apparently ongoing.
The possibility for new elections has not been excluded.
