Voter turnout highest in more than a decade

Nearly 4,000 students voted online in the ASUA general election, the most since 1990, producing one of the closest elections in UA history with less than 1 percent of the vote separating the winners from the losers in some offices.

But there's a solid group of senate hopefuls with potential.
