Campus-Wide Elections

2018 Spring Election Filings (pdf)

Elections Description

Each spring semester, many different positions open up for campus leadership opportunities. Positions become available in the Graduate Student Assembly, Student Government, Texas Student Media, University Co-op, and the University Unions. These opportunities are fulfilled by students who file to become candidates and participate in the Campus-Wide Elections.

Supervision of the Campus-Wide Elections begins with the Election Supervisory Board. This group is charged with conducting and overseeing the elections, including disputes and grievances. Students have the opportunity to participate on the Election Supervisory Board when applications open mid-fall.

During each fall semester, first-year students have the opportunity to serve on Student Government via First-Year Elections.
