Deadline for ASG Senate Vacancy Applications Is Noon Tuesday

Applications for students interested in filling vacant seats in the Associated Student Government Senate are now available on the Office of Student Activities' HogSync portal. Students should log in with a valid uark.edu email address.

Students interested in becoming a part of the Senate should visit the Senate webpage at asg.uark.edu/senate. The vacant seats in the Senate will be filled through the fall at-large election the first week of September. Students do not run by college of enrollment; instead, all students vote for all candidates that appear on one ballot. Five seats in the vacancy election are reserved for freshmen. Applications are open to U of A undergraduate students who meet co-curricular requirements. Senate Vacancy Applications are due by noon (CST) Tuesday, Sept. 3, on HogSync. In addition, interested students must complete an online candidate orientation quiz by the application deadline. More information can be found at asg.uark.edu/get-involved-join-us/elections.

Voting in the 2019 ASG Fall Vacancy Election will begin Friday, Sept. 6, at 9 a.m. CST and conclude Tuesday, Sept. 10, at 4 p.m. CST. Candidates will be required to turn in an expenditure report at the conclusion of their campaign. More information on the expenditure report will be available through the candidate orientation materials.

Any questions about Senate duties should be sent to Chair of Senate Kianna Sarvestani at asgsen@uark.edu. Questions about the election and process should be sent to Interim Chief Justice Justyce Yuille at asgjcj@uark.edu.
