To be considered as a candidate for Graduate President or Executive Vice President you must complete pages 3-4 of the Graduate Elections packet or the online application in addition to pages 5-7 of the Graduate Elections packet (if applicable) and submit these by SUNDAY MARCH 24th at 5:00 PM in the SGA Office. Please note: unlike their undergraduate counterparts, these offices are contested separately (i.e. not as a ticket).
IMPORTANT: If you use the online application, you should see a message and receive a confirmation email once you have submitted your entry. If you do not get either, the entry has not been registered; please try again. Also be sure to return pages 5-7, if necessary, to the SGA Office by SUNDAY MARCH 24th at 5:00 PM. Should you experience further technical difficulties, please submit a paper form or contact the Elections Director.
The SGA Office is located in the Student Center Commons across from Subway.
The Graduate Student Government Elections Code is available below. Read the entire document and be familiar with it.
For elections violations, contact the Elections Director for an Elections Violation Form.
Any inquires, concerns, or comments about the election process and procedures may be directed to the Elections Director, Jordan Landry, at email@example.com.
Good luck in the upcoming elections for Graduate Student Government!
