Students help spur record voter turnout

ASU students and residents wait in line to exercise their right to vote Tuesday afternoon. This election year could have one of the largest voter turnouts since the late ’60s.
Early estimates suggest Tuesday's presidential election drew the highest voter turnout in more than a decade in Arizona.

Four polling sites, including one at ASU Main at the corner of Apache Boulevard and Rural Road, did not finish processing voters until 12:35 a.m., said Maricopa County Elections Department spokeswoman Yvonne Reed.

"I would say that voter turnout was very good, especially percentage-wise because there were more registered voters this election [than in 2000]," Reed said.

Students split on election's outcome

President Bush was re-elected to serve another four years in the White House, while Democratic challenger Sen. John Kerry conceded defeat after a grueling fight for the presidency Wednesday.

Kerry acknowledged Bush's victory without challenging the vote count in determinant state Ohio.

Criminal justice junior Merle Mathews said the elections re-established his belief in the government system because the decision over the presidency was more professional.

ASU freshman guard Reagan Pariseau surveys the court during the Sun Devils exhibition game against Strakonice, Czech Republic, Wednesday night at Wells Fargo Arena.
The ASU women's basketball team hadn't played a game in nearly eight months prior to Wednesday night, but the only thing that looked different about these Sun Devils were their slick new Nike threads.

Every one of head coach Charli Turner Thorne's key players from last season returned. Star forward Betsy Boardman began a comeback from yet another knee surgery. Fan favorite Jill Noe was still sitting at the end of the bench due to a second knee surgery of her own. And ASU again saw the debuts of two new players expected to make a big impact.
