HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (AP) - A symbolic vote by Marshall University faculty members on the job performance of President Stephen Kopp is wrapping up.

Marshall's Faculty Senate began conducting a nonbinding vote on Kopp starting April 24. The online voting is set to end Tuesday night.

Faculty Senate Chairman Eldon Larsen said Monday that roughly 800 faculty members are eligible to vote.

Larsen says the voting results will be sent to faculty members on Wednesday.

The vote was scheduled during an emergency meeting of the Faculty Senate on April 19, a day after the Marshall Board of Governors tabled a proposal by Kopp to overhaul the school's budget policies.

Kopp ordered the removal of nearly all revenue funds from department accounts into a central holding account. Kopp later apologized and had the money returned.
