Student Association executive board elections to take place March 24-26

Students can submit petitions to run until Friday

Student Association executive board elections will take place from Tuesday, March 24 through Thursday, March 26.

Current students who want to run for the 2020-21 e-board must have a minimum 2.0 grade point average and a petition with at least 200 signatures from undergraduate students. Anyone who meets these qualifications will have a slot on the ballot. Petitions are available in SA’s Student Union offices and are due on Friday. Students cannot campaign until after the petition deadline and candidacy will not be official until Friday.

Students hoping to run must attend a “mandatory candidate meeting” on Friday at 6 p.m. SA will hold a club “endorsement meeting” on Monday, March 23 at 7 p.m. During the endorsement meeting, SA clubs will vote on who to endorse after candidates present speeches.

Only 2,181 students –– roughly 10% of the undergraduate student body –– voted in last year’s election. The president and vice president won after receiving 1,043 votes.

The Spectrum’s coverage of the election will appear online before our next print publication on March 26, the final day of polling.
