Election committee sets dates
Candidate signature sheets are due Thursday, March 2 at 6 p.m. for students running in the Student Association, Program Board and Marvin Center Governing Board election set for next month.
The Joint Elections Committee, the election’s oversight body, announced last week that all candidates must have the forms, with the requisite number of signatures, turned in by Thursday to Marvin Center room 411 for their name to appear on the ballot. The election will be held on March 29 and 30.
All candidates who have gained enough signatures will be invited to a candidates’ meeting on Friday in the Marvin Center. Candidates must get signatures from 1 percent of their constituents for their names to appear on the ballot.
The JEC also announced that candidates may begin postering on March 20 at 7 a.m. Candidates may begin turning in campaign material at any time during the campaign, which has already officially begun.
The election will determine the next SA president and will also elect a new SA Senate. MCGB and PB Executive Board positions are also in contention. Junior Elizabeth Fox, chair of the JEC, said that if no candidate garners a majority of the student vote for SA president, a run-off will be held on April 5 and 6.
