Our regular elections take place every spring semester and opens up all (14) Senate positions, President, & Vice President. You can run for any of these positions during this time. 

Special elections are opened when there is a need to fulfill vacant positions, there is no set time for special elections as they only take place on a need basis. The positions you are available to run for depend on open vacancies, meaning not every position is open.


You must either attend an in-person candidate orientation or watch a virtual orientation through the link provided in the "Elections Materials" Google Drive. Once you complete your orientation you are then tasked to get signatures of support from your fellow peers. Senators need (25) signatures and those running for President/Vice President need (100) signatures. In addition to these signatures those running must complete and submit the following documents: Candidate Application, Candidate Quiz, & Campaign Staff Roster. 


Voting links are sent out to your school email. Each link is unique to you and can only be used once. Make sure to check your email and use that link to vote before voting ends!
