OREM, Utah (AP) -- UVSC students will head to the polls today to vote on proposed changes to their student constitution.

In October, Orem resident Kay Anderson filed a lawsuit claiming student leaders violated their constitution by paying more than 50-thousand dollars for filmmaker Michael Moore's visit to the school.

The current constitution allows for expenditures more than 50-thousand dollars, but only after approval in a general student vote, open forums, printed notice in the school newspaper and a waiting period.

The proposed constitution change would strike down the need for general vote and leaving the decision to the student council.

Additional changes also include adding a new vice president position and increasing the G-P-A requirement for potential president or vice president candidates.
