UPDATE: On-campus polling place moved due to flooding
February 5, 2008 7:51 AM
Voters expecting to cast ballots at the Science and Technology Theme Community conference center in the campus Towers residences will be redirected to the Seven Hills Conference Center after the original polling place was unexpectedly hit with a shower from the fire sprinklers, poll worker Eileen Olicker said.
When Olicker arrived to set up yesterday, there was a construction crew in the Science and Technology Theme Community conference room, she said.
According to SF State University Housing Associate Director Philippe Cumia, the flooding occurred on the night of Jan. 23. A resident of the STTC accidentally activated the sprinkler system when she hung and later removed a coat hanger from the sprinkler head in her closet, Cumia wrote in an e-mail.
Portions of four floors in the building were flooded, according to Cumia, and residents were relocated. He wrote that the Towers were expected to be restored by the coming weekend.
To find the on-campus polling place, you will go past One Stop Student Services, through the Village, past Subway and down the stairs. On your right will be the Science and Technology Theme Community, the old polling place.
Signs have been posted in front of the conference center to direct voters to the Seven Hills Conference Center near Mark Park and Mary Ward Halls.
