SA to hold elections second week of March

Student Association elections will be held on March 9 and 10, the Joint Elections Committee announced Tuesday.

Students will elect a new president and executive vice president of the Student Association, and will also vote to fill 15 undergraduate, 13 graduate and two law school seats on the senate, according to the JEC’s website.

Candidates must submit a candidacy statement to the JEC during the third week of February and postering will take place on Feb. 26.

Three members of the JEC are appointed by the SA President and approved by the SA Senate, according to the JEC charter. One member is appointed by the Class Council and another by Program Board.

A record total of 5,456 students voted in last year’s election. Students overwhelmingly supported referenda to establish mandatory sexual assault training at Colonial Inauguration and to remove fossil fuel investments from GW’s endowment.

Former Executive Vice President Casey Syron stepped down from his position Friday afternoon, citing personal and health reasons.
