The story so far: Student Government Elections 2018
Designed by Jayson Jeffers
Monday and Tuesday, candidates for the Student Government executive positions and senate seats can file to run for the Feb. 27-28 elections.
While 54 candidates are competing for the 50 student senate seats, more than a third of the seats don't have a candidate. Six colleges have no one running at all.
Following a hearing for campaign violations just after the start of Student Government election season, no points were assigned against a candidate's campaign.
The Student Government Elections Commission ruled Monday night against Presidential candidate Tommy DiBona and vice presidential candidate Madi Carzon, a decision DiBona said they're definitely planning to appeal.
According to debate moderator Lee Goble, perhaps the most important aspect of the 2018 executive candidates' debate wasn't what came out of the candidates' mouths, but who showed up to hear it.
The Student Government Constitutional Council has denied an appeal from presidential candidate Tommy DiBona and vice presidential candidate Madi Carzon, who disagreed with a Monday night Elections Commission ruling that gave each of them five points. Each candidate can earn 10 points before being removed from contention.
