Election day: 2/21

The general election for the Student Association, Marvin Center Governing Board, and the Program Board will be held from Wednesday, February 21 until Thursday, February 22 with the run-off election for the top two vote-getters for SA president and executive vice president occurring from Wednesday, February 28 until Thursday, March 1, if needed, according to an e-mail sent by the Joint Elections Committee on Monday evening following their first meeting earlier that day.

The five person JEC, which oversees the elections and sets the election dates, also decided on the positions of its members. They elected sophomore Laura Bentele as their chair, senior Morgan Corr as their vice-chair, junior Riki Parikh as their secretary, junior Alex Scott as their ballot counter, and senior Michael Tarantino as their poll coordinator, according to the e-mail.

In addition, the JEC launched www.gwelection.com which currently includes the JEC charter and information on future meetings, will soon include candidate and voter information along with other JEC documents, according to the e-mail.

The JEC will meet again on Wednesday, January 17.

Stay tuned to the SA Blog throughout this week for more updates on the candidates and the election.
