Campus-Wide Elections

Welcome to the Campus-Wide Elections website. Here you will find all the information you need for UT Austin fall and spring student body elections. These elections offer interested students a unique opportunity to learn more about the University, serve fellow longhorns and work with administrators across the Forty Acres.

During each fall semester, first-year students have the opportunity to serve on Student Government via First-Year Elections. Student Government Supreme Court is charged with conducting and overseeing First-Year Elections, including disputes and grievances.

Each spring semester, more than 50 different campus leadership opportunities become available in the Graduate Student Assembly, Student Government, Texas Student Media, University Co-op, and the University Unions. The Election Supervisory Board is charged with conducting and overseeing the elections, including disputes and grievances. Students interested in participating with the Election Supervisory Board may apply when applications open mid-fall.

Whether you run for an elected position, support and campaign for someone who does, or simply vote, the entire campus-wide election process is a chance for all Longhorns to be better citizens and stewards of the University's mission to change the world.
