Membership applications are due on Monday, February 20, 2017 by 5PM. Potential members will be asked to sign up for interviews upon submitting the application. Elections Committee members are expected to be unbiased and neutral toward every candidate and campaign who participates in the election. This time commitment may involve anywhere from three to twelve hours a week. You will be expected to attend every meeting for the Elections Committee; however exceptions will be made at the discretion of the Elections Manager on an individual basis. Members of the committee will not be expected to miss class in order to attend to committee business. In addition to attending regularly scheduled meetings of the Elections Committee, members will be expected to perform other duties to support the election, such as working directly with candidates and campaigns to provide information about election rules and processes, assists in the training of candidates and campaigns during Elections Orientation Sessions held the week before Spring Break, as well as observing every aspect of the execution of the ASCSU Election. While the Elections Committee serves as the oversight board for all election-related issues, you will never be asked to personally enforce any election rules or regulations. Members of the Elections Committee serve only as advisors to the election process, and as a jury in the case of any rules violation questions that arise.
