Homecoming voting experiences issues

Sydney Edwards, Copy Editor

The 2015 Homecoming voting process began Monday but closed Wednesday evening; however, for some students the process was delayed because of technical difficulties.

Those who experienced these difficulties voted then had a message that said the voting had been shut down.

When the Homecoming committee noticed the issue, the members were able to get into the system and see those who had technical issues. After they figured out who had issues, the committee members sent new voting links out to those individuals.

Now that the voting is over, the winners will be announced at 7 p.m. on Oct. 19 at McAfee Gym.

The evening has a theme of 1920, and the Homecoming committee encourages all who are attending to dress in 1920s attire.

Nathan Wehr, the interim assistant director of student life, said the winners will receive something much more special.

“The winners will be able to look back and state they were crowned either the King, Queen, Prince, or Princess during Eastern Illinois University’s 100th Homecoming,” Wehr said.
