BREAKING: Spirit RED wins SGA presidency, sweeps Senate


Winni Zhang will be the 2017-2018 president of the Student Government Association. These results will be final March 5, pending complaints.

Zhang and her running mate Adrian Hernandez won the election with 50.8 percent of the vote; Jordyn Chaffold and Farah Islam of House of Innovation received 23.12 percent of the vote; Shawn Bhatia and Seth Crawford of REDvolution earned 17.7 percent of the vote; and VoteforMeme’s Robert Comer and True Furrh came in last with 8.39 percent of the vote.

The number of students who voted this year was 3,670, which is slightly more than a 15-percent decrease from last year’s 4,324 under election commissioner Jackson Crawford with the election of current President Shane Smith.

An SGA presidential candidate must receive at least 50 percent of the vote towin without a runoff election. Zhang surpassed this margin by .8 percent, but students have two days to file formal complaints before the results are finalized.

Senatorial candidates from Zhang’s party, Spirit RED: Improve Parking, Improve Health Services, Improve Textbook Prices, swept the election by winning 23 of the 35 eligible seats.
