Southern Illinois University to hold special election this fall

CARBONDALE - A special election will be held by Southern Illinois University this fall because of an error that officials say invalidated its Board of Trustees student representative election.

Randy Dunn, president of the university, says there was confusion about whether an eligibility check was completed for all the candidates vying for the post.

A senior at the university, Adrian Miller, won the spring election, collecting 60 percent of the vote.  However, Miller says that he doesn't want a cloud to hang over the vote, and will be happy to run in the special election.

The date for the special election has not been set.
