UPUA Prepares For Election Season With Information Sessions

Update 4:35 p.m.: The Elections Commission has canceled the first info session due to inclement weather.

Original story: As representatives are reminded at each weekly meeting, the University Park Undergraduate Association’s 12th Assembly doesn’t have much time left. UPUA is already preparing for its upcoming election season, and as such will hold information sessions the next few weeks for anyone interested in running for office.

Candidates who want to run for either a representative position or on an executive ticket must attend one of the four information sessions, which will be held as follows:

  • 6-7 p.m. Wednesday, February 7 in 233 HUB
  • 6-7 p.m. Thursday, February 8 in 60 Willard
  • 5-6 p.m. Tuesday, February 13 in 106 Boucke
  • 4:30-5:30 p.m. Thursday, February 15 in 16 PRCC (pending)

This year’s sessions (sadly?) don’t fall on February 14, but there’s surely no better way to spend Valentine’s Day than at UPUA’s weekly meeting, which starts at 8 p.m. that Wednesday in 233B HUB.

Candidate registration opens at 8 a.m. Monday, February 19 (bright and early after THON) and closes at 5 p.m. Friday, March 2 (the Friday before Spring Break). The Elections Commission normally announces all candidates and officially begins the campaigning period the Monday after Spring Break.

For further information on UPUA’s 13th Assembly elections, you can follow along with the Elections Commission’s new Twitter account, @psuupuaelection. Yes, we’re just as confused as you are.
