The ASUCD Elections Committee is responsible for the fair, impartial and efficient administration of ASUCD elections. In addition to this core responsibility, the Committee also coordinates publicity and outreach to encourage students to vote, and sponsors candidate and ballot measure forums to better inform students of Election issues.
Two general elections are held each academic year. Six senators are elected during the seventh week of fall quarter and six senators as well as the President and Vice President are elected during the seventh week of winter quarter.
The Elections Committee is always looking for Elections interns! Interns are volunteers who want a small time commitment, but huge exposure to student government, potentially leading to future job/intern/volunteer opportunities within ASUCD. Interns assist the Elections Committee in ensuring the smooth execution of ASUCD elections with a variety of possible responsibilities including outreach, publicity (chalking, flyering, etc.) and running/managing voting stations. Interns will be trained to prevent and document violations of the ASUCD Bylaws and Elections Codes, run a polling station and attract votes.

If you are interested in running for office, initiating a ballot measure or recall campaign, becoming an intern/volunteer, or have any questions related to ASUCD Elections, please email us.
