“Student Government is taken seriously by both UF, students’ (Feb. 24, 2010, Gainesville Sun)
Little told the Gainesville Sun that the claim that students are participating in a mock government might have carried more weight decades ago, before the voting age was dropped to 18 from 21. UF law professor emeritus Joe Little, an attorney for the online voting group, argued that university student governments were created under state law. In addition, the Florida Constitution created university boards of trustees and the Florida Board of Governors to oversee state universities. Both bodies include former student government presidents as members. Little said the claim that students are participating in a mock government might have carried more weight decades ago, before the voting age was dropped to 18 from 21. Now, students come to the UF campus officially as legal adults, so he said the argument is outdated. “It’s just inconsistent with today’s world,” Little said.
