Each eligible voter will receive two ballots: (1) an Executive Ballot to cast votes for President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer, and Senators-at-Large, and (2) a College Senator ballot in which one will only be allowed to cast votes in the election pertaining to the college in which they are a part of.


Hereʻs how to get voting!

  2. Copy the one-time use access code contained in the email to your clipboard

  3. Click on the link to your ballot

  4. When prompted, enter your one-time use access code

  5. Vote for the candidate(s) of your choosing

In order to run for Senate, you must meet the following requirements:
