The ASCSM election is nearing and candidates are campaigning to better their chances of being elected as student president, student vice president and senate positions.
Approximately 60 percent of the current staff will be running again, and the current student president and vice president will be running. The rest will not be returning because of transfer to other colleges and universities.
“There are roughly 12 candidates for the 16 positions in senate. There is still room for more candidates,” said Paige Kupperberg, ASCSM president.In order to be considered as a candidate, student applicants must have a minimum of a 2.0 cumulative GPA and must have obtained at least a 2.0 GPA in the last semester in which they were
enrolled. Applicants must also have at least a 50 percent completion rate and must be currently enrolled in at least six units. Candidates will be campaigning while following strict guidelines, until May 7.
Elections will be held between May 8 and May 10 and results will be announced on the second week of May.
ASCSM is in the process of changing their constitution for next year, said Therese Salazar, student senator. “This will be on the ballot in the coming election.”
