Students discuss the importance of SGA’s role on campus

Last year, during the University of Houston’s 2016 Student Government Association election, 4,324 students voted, only roughly 10 percent of the overall 43,774 student body population.

The 2017 election is set to begin next Wednesday Feb. 22, and The Cougar asked students why they thought there was such a small voter turnout last year, what SGA can do differently to improve voter turnout and whether they think SGA’s role is useful on campus.
