Elections

Each year in April SGA holds the election of its officers (President and Vice President) and senate members.  Early in the Spring semester, an Election Board is selected.  Their job is to create and enforce election and campaigning guidelines, facilitate information/orientation meetings, collect petitions, and serve as the contact point for all election and campaigning issues.  This is also when SGA submits any Bills they are trying to pass.  These are usually changes that SGA would like to make to their constitution.

Any fulltime student may run for a position in the following year's association.  Officers must have and maintain a cumulative GPA of 2.50, and senators must have and maintain a cumulative GPA of 2.25.  Students may run as either a member of a party or unaffiliated.  They will have the chance to campaign and may even participate in some wonderful debates.

The tentative timeline for the 2012 elections is as follows:

  • January - Selection of Election Board
  • Mid-February - Approval of Election Guidelines
  • Third week in February -First week in March - Information/Orientation meetings for prospective candidates
  • Second week in March - Petitions to run due
  • Third week in March - First week in April - Campaigning
  • Second week in April - Voting
  • Results announced

***Remember this is a tentative timeline and subject to change***
