Large Number of Candidates; Big Election Turnout

NOTRE DAME University Has Huge Turnout for Student Election.

Notre Dame of Indiana? Nah, Notre Dame of Beirut.

It just goes to show what can happen where the voting right is precious and people take the act of voting seriously. Even student elections at Notre Dame University in Beirut, Lebanon have large numbers of candidates, active parties and a big turnout. There may be some lessons here for us in America and none of them have to do with the lack of a football or basketball program.

Rafead El Rafei reports in the
Daily Star of Lebanon:
This year's elections saw record participation, with 85 percent of the students voting for 46 candidates vying for 21 seats.
