ASB members announce winners in personality elections.
Candidates have been on their toes for the past week using their creativity, advertising their platforms, and speaking to different audiences about why they should be elected either to the 2016 University of Mississippi Homecoming Court or as a Campus Favorite, Homecoming Queen or Mr. or Miss Ole Miss.
Today was the culmination of all of their hard work. There were supporters of all of the candidates around campus all day making sure everyone voted, and the results are in, having just been announced this evening on the steps of the Lyceum.
