2011-2012 Student Government Representatives Elected
April 4, 2011
During the most elaborate election process in the Council's history, 19 candidates loaded the ballot in hopes of joining or continuing to serve for the 2011-2012 school year. The record number of candidates put forth a barrage of publicity, flyers and other activities, including the first-ever Candidates Meet & Greet, where students, faculty and staff had the opportunity to meet the candidates and speak with them firsthand.
In addition, a record number of voters cast their ballots both online through Genisys and in person at the Student Center during the two-day voting period. A total of 248 voters voted for 10 Senators and nine other students vying for just five positions on the Executive Board, which included tight races between the candidates for President, Secretary, and Treasurer.
