Recent News:

  • Elections were delayed due to technical difficulties on SOLAR, and started on Thursday at 10am instead of Wednesday at 3pm. As a result, the deadline was pushed back.
  • A public debate was advertised and held on Thursday after the senate meeting where voters had a chance to hear from the candidates and make an informed decision.
  • As of this year, SOLAR now shows a confirmation page after you submit your vote, thanks to DoIT. This will prevent the confusion voters have experienced in the past.
  • For the first time in a while, a press release and information packet was sent out to the media organizations on campus, and as a result we have received increased attention to the fall elections, thanks to The Statesman and others. Their video interviews are now featured above.
