About

Elections allow every student to play a role in choosing the leadership of the Student Government Association. Class Officers, who serve on the Community Service Commission, are elected during the fall semester. The Student Body President and Vice-President are elected during the spring semester. Election rules and procedures are the constitutional responsibility of the Chief Justice, who is tasked with ensuring a fair and impartial election for all candidates.

The election rules for each election will be final as of the end of the Candidate Orientation for that election.

Election Committee

The Election Committee consists of the Chief Justice, Student Body President, Student Body Vice-President, Speaker of the House of Delegates, and the chair of the Community Service Commission, assisted by the Election Commissioner. The Election Committee updates the election rules immediately after each election. Per the constitution, the Chief Justice has final say on any rule changes, though he or she may defer to a majority vote.

The Election Commission is tasked with carrying out each election per the election rules and procedures given by the Election Committee. Members of the Election Commission are nominated by the Election Commissioner and confirmed by the Election Committee.
