Students elected next year's representatives for student government, the ASPSU, on Friday. A record breaking 2,432 students turned out to vote. "The 21% increase in student voters indicates the overall increase in student involvement at Portland State University," said student body President Christy Harper.

The new ASPSU President, Vice President, and Senators will begin their service to the PSU campus on June 1st, 2005. The new Student Fee Committee will begin July 1st, 2005.

In addition, both referenda on the ballot passed. The first referendum was revisions to the ASPSU Constitutional Revisions which, amongst other changes, increased checks and balances and added an SFC member. The second referendum amended the Constitution to add Instant Runoff Voting, a system of preferential ballot ranking, for the election of future ASPSU Presidents, Vice Presidents, and SFC Chairs.
