SGA voting runs Monday through Wednesday


Voting for this week’s Student Government Association election runs from 8 a.m. Monday through 5 p.m. Wednesday.

Ballot links will be sent to students’ myWSU email accounts Monday morning. This year, there will not be in-person polling stations.

Four executive tickets are running — Perpetual, All Voices Heard, Together We Can, and Unity Through Diversity. The crowded field is a stark contrast from last year, when Kenon Brinkley and Shelby Rowell’s Revival ticket ran unopposed.

In addition to voting for student body president and vice president, students will select college-specific, at-large, and special constituency senators to represent them in SGA.

A meager 12.3% of students voted in last year’s SGA election — down from 19.7% in 2017, when two tickets ran. March’s Shock the Future referendum turned out 28.4% of fee-paying students.

Election results will be announced at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday in the Rhatigan Student Center’s first-floor Bluestem Lounge.


Correction: A previous version of this story falsely claimed that there will be in-person polling stations located around campus. Unlike during last month’s referendum and in previous years of SGA elections, no such in-person polling stations are available to voters.
