    1. Log into the SSC here
    2. Click on Webvote, in the bullet list on the main page.
    3. Click Cast Vote
    4. Vote on each of the referendum questions. The one concerning the U-Pass is: 2011 AMS Referendum Question 3: U-Pass Renewal

    I have one comment on their question about the proposed increase in AMS fees. I find it misleading how they emphasize that the total net increase is only $5, but if you look carefully it's only a net increase of $5 if you pay for the AMS Health/Dental plan. Those that opt out of the AMS Health/Dental plan will see a larger increase in AMS fees. I suppose that can be made up via the 3% subsidy, but how easy is it to apply for this subsidy? Who is eligible? Not enough information if you ask me :(.
