Rerun Election for Second Vice President

By Kelly Hand

Caprice Lawless, who teaches English at Front Range Community College in Colorado, won a rerun election in December for the position of AAUP second vice president. The election was rerun after a protest was filed involving the initial election. By action of the AAUP Election Committee, which was affirmed by the Election Appeals Committee, the election for the office of AAUP second vice president was set aside and a new election was ordered.

Since this was a rerun election, it involved the same two candidates who were included on the initial March 2018 ballot, and there were no nominations. The election followed the provisions of the AAUP Constitution and the modified version of the AAUP Election Rules approved by the AAUP’s national Council in September.
