A slim majority of students voted Monday against having the university’s Bookstore move into the student centre.

The University of Windsor Students’ Alliance signed a contract with the university last April to move the Bookstore into the now closed Thirty Scholar Pub in the basement of the CAW Student Centre. Students opposed to the contract circulated a petition to start a referendum.

The polls closed at midnight with 533 voting against the proposal, 445 voting in favour, 12 not applicable and 13 declined.

“We should have quorum,” said Ebenezer Fordjour, the election’s chief returning officer, at the time of print.

Quorum for the referendum is equal to 10 per cent, which according to Fordjour, UWSA vice-president administration Alyssa Atkins said is 1,000 votes.

Stay tuned for updated results.
