SGA is holding an election for senator positions and all students are eligible to vote. Voting opened Sept. 13 at 12:00 p.m., and students have until 11:59 p.m. tonight, Sept. 17, to cast their ballots. Tabling and advertisement for this election is the responsibility of SGA’s Judicial Branch.

Voting is being held on RowdyLink. The website is hosting a blue banner that provides students the option to sign in and vote. The banner states, “It’s election time. Don’t forget to vote.” There is an additional message located underneath this statement which reads, “Be the change you wish to see in the world by getting involved and playing an important role in this crucial decision. Make sure you vote before it’s too late.”

Students have the option of voting for representatives in the college of their enrollment and their associated classification, e.g. freshman, sophomore, junior or senior. Below is a list of the positions and seats available, as well as the candidates who notified SGA of their intention to run.
