Student Government candidate deadline approaches


The Student Government Association election season is fast approaching, and with it comes deadlines. The final day for students to submit candidate applications for SGA president, vice president and senator positions is Friday, Feb. 13 at 5 p.m.

SGA chief election commissioner Joshua Freed said that the reformed election code, which passed in December, will help to “close loopholes” that have caused issues in previous elections.

“The biggest benefit of it is that it’s simpler, it’s easier to read, it’s better organized so that the election commission has clear directives on what its responsibilities are,” Freed said. “That in and of itself is what alleviates a lot of the problems.”

SGA president, vice president, senators and senators-at-large are all elected to one-year terms. There are senators elected for each college, with the number of senators determined by the size of the college they represent. To apply, visit the Get Involved page.

Official campaigning will begin Monday, and voting will take place in March.
