Yale College Council elections were taken offline shortly after opening Thursday morning due to technical errors.

YCC President Brandon Levin ’13 said there was a glitch in the program that deleted some names off of the ballots. When students went to vote for their college’s representative, they only saw the names of those representatives who were in their class year, and not candidates from other class years. Levin said the problem is being addressed and elections should reopen around 7 p.m.

Elections this week are for residential college representatives, and Freshman, Sophomore and Junior Class Council representatives.
