Your Guide To UPUA Election Day 2016
It’s UPUA Election Day, Penn State!
Voting begins at 6 a.m. and runs until 10 p.m. You can vote on vote.psu.edu or go to the HUB, where UPUA has a polling station set up.
After the disqualification of one ticket, there is one “official” ticket left running for the UPUA presidency. Terry Ford and Katie Jordan will be the only options printed on the ballot, but one dark horse ticket has emerged as a write-in option. Patrick Cines and Michael Straw have started a grassroots write-in campaign to compete against the Ford/Jordan campaign. There are also 23 candidates for 20 at-large spots, 16 candidates for 11 college-specific spots (3 colleges don’t have representatives running), and 15 candidates running for 5 spots representing each area of residence halls (East Halls does not have a representative running).
Onward State has chosen not to endorse any candidates this year. You can read our disclaimer regarding the elections here.
