Preparing for student elections

This past week, I have been beyond busy getting materials ready for the 2014-15 UIC Student Elections. As a Undergraduate Student Government (USG) member, I am dedicating myself to get the word out to all students about elections.
In case you never heard of UIC Student Elections, let me give you an overview. Each year, UIC administration opens up elections for the entire UIC student body to choose their representatives in a variety of areas. Included in this election is the Student Member of the Board of Trustees and the entire USG assembly.
The Student Trustee position sits on the University of Illinois Board of Trustees, representing the UIC student voice at the highest-level possible on campus for a full-year term. Furthermore, the USG President and Vice-President lead the undergraduate class in all decisions at the campus administrative level for a year-long term. The USG assembly members that run in the election are chosen to represent the undergraduate students in a variety of campus advocacy work for two full years.
This year, the Student Trustee and USG President elections are contested – two candidates are running against each other in the trustee elections and three in the presidential elections.
Elections will be held this year on March 12 and 13 at uicvote.uic.edu. PLEASE remember to vote! It is important that you have a say so in who represents YOU in all UIC administrative levels. To get to know more about the candidates, their platforms, to hear them speak, and when polls are open, please visit the USG website here.
Share your thoughts on the elections in the comment section – I’d love to see them!
Until next time…
Mike
