About

The Student Body President and Vice-President are elected during the spring semester.

Election Rules and Procedures

Election rules and procedures are the constitutional responsibility of the Election Commissioner, assisted by the Election Committee. The election rules and procedures document are available above for each election, but are subject to change. 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 pro tempore of the Senate. The Committee serves as an advisory board to the Election Commissioner in revising and updating the Election Rules. As the impartial, unbiased party, the Election Commissioner has full authority over any rule change decisions, though he or she may defer to a vote or delegate power in another way.

Election Board

The Election Board consists of the Election Commissioner and four undergraduate students who do not currently have another position within SGA. The Election Board is tasked with implementing and enforcing the Election Rules. Members of the Election Board are nominated by the Election Commissioner and confirmed by the Election Committee.

If you are interested in serving on the Election Board or have any additional questions regarding elections, please contact Annaliese Vanio, the Election Commissioner.
