The UPUA 2010-2011 Candidates Are In…

Registration for candidates for this year’s UPUA elections has been closed and those that have been selected to do battle have been named.

For the 2010 UPUA President/Vice President nomination, weighing in at I-don’t-know-how-many pounds, it’s Christian Ragland and Colleen Smith, who will be facing David Adewumi and Devin Weakland.

The two tickets will campaign and debate over the next two weeks until March 31, Election Day. Both tickets have already begun their campaigning. You can check out the Ragland-Smith literature on their website, Twitter, or Facebook and you can do the same for the Adewumi-Weakland ticket on their website, Twitter, or Facebook.

The three biggest contests are At-Large Representative, Off-Campus Representative, and On-Campus Representative. There are also two students going for a single Arts & Architecture. All other spots– namely the College representatives– are being sought by just one person (or, in the case of IST and Education, no one! what’s up with that?).

The full list of candidates is at the end of this post.

Good luck and no mud-slinging, toy-bagging, or sleep-shooting.

Only one of those is real.
