After a close November 2009 campaign for Santa Barbara 3rd Districts Supervisor between Steve Pappas ­­­and Doreen Farr.  Steve Pappas lost the fall run-off by 805 votes.  Because he was handedly beat by Doreen Farr when it came to the student vote [two-thirds of the student vote went to Doreen Farr], Pappas filed a petition arguing that illegal voting by students in Isla Vista and on-campus at UCSB skewed the numbers in favor of his opponent.
