Students: Vote for ASG Vacancies and Referendum Through 4 p.m. Today

Voting opened Monday, Sept. 11, for the At-Large Vacancy elections for Associated Student Government Senate and Graduate Student Congress, as well as a referendum issue. Voting will end at 4 p.m. Sept. 13. Students should go to asg.uark.edu/elections to review the ballot and then vote. Unofficial election results will be emailed and posted on the ASG website by 10 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 13.

There are 16 vacant seats in the Senate. Per the ASG Constitution, of the sixteen vacant seats in the Senate, five will be awarded to the five freshman Senate candidates who receive the most votes during the election. The Senate candidates and their campaign platforms can be reviewed at asg.uark.edu/elections.

There are 27 vacant seats in the Graduate Student Congress. The Graduate Student Congress candidates and their campaign platforms can be reviewed on the GSC "Meet the Candidates" page.

The fall election will also feature a referendum vote to approve the Associated Students Supreme Constitution. The referendum vote is a yes/no vote to approve the Associated Students Supreme Constitution. All currently enrolled students will be eligible to vote on this question. When they access their ballot, students will be asked to vote in response to the question: "Do you support creating the Associated Students Supreme Constitution and the Graduate-Professional Student Congress?" Details about this ballot issue, including a copy of the Associated Students Supreme Constitution and FAQs, can be found at asg.uark.edu/elections.

While voting in the ASG Fall Election is hosted online, students who prefer to use a paper ballot can visit the Office of Student Activities in the Arkansas Union at ARKU A665 during regular business hours (8 a.m. to 5 p.m. CT) on voting days.

The Graduate Student Congress serves as the liaison between the U of A's nearly 4,000 graduate students, which now constitute nearly 16 percent of the overall enrollment at the university. Graduate and law students can voice their ideas about improving graduate-student education and well-being to their ASG GSC representatives. More information on Graduate Student Congress can be found at asg.uark.edu/graduate-student-congress.
