UPUA Election Registration Open Through Friday

If you’re interested in representing the student body, registration for the 2015 UPUA elections are officially open, per a release from the organization. Until this Friday, you can stop by the UPUA office at 324 HUB to pick up a registration packet between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m.

Undergraduate students can run to represent their academic colleges or serve in an at-large representative position, of which 20 are available in the assembly. If being another face in the assembly doesn’t quite rustle your jimmies, the executive ticket to replace Anand Ganjam and Emily McDonald as president and vice president respectively is another option.

For a representative position, you’ll need 250 signatures in order to run. The executive tickets require 500 signatures. And if that all sounds like too much work, academic representatives do not need to obtain any signatures to run for student government office.

In addition to grabbing a registration packet and filling out a signature list, candidates will need to attend an information session this week. There is one tonight, Monday, from 7:30 to 8:30 p.m. in 206 Agricultural Engineering. If that doesn’t work, a second session will be held Tuesday from 7 to 8 p.m.

Don’t take your time, though, as registration for the April 1 election will close on Friday at 5 p.m. If you have any questions, you can contact Meeten Doshi, the head elections commissioner, via e-mail. Doshi is certainly an excellent resource on all election-related topics as he ran for president last year.
