Well, it is official! I am now a candidate for Sophomore President of Class of 2017!!! I launched my campaign on campus today and everything has been going very well so far!! I have just finished creating my posters and putting them all up! Elections are on Tuesday Wish me luck!
Hi you just answered my question I'm interested in running for class President how does that election usually go?
Ah, wonderful! I am actually running for class president now for the sophomore class! The election process is a bit different than high school. There are no candidate speeches or live elections of those sorts. The WAC SGA Election process runs for about three weeks into the semester and during the first week, there is a petition that you must acquire 50 peer signatures to be placed on the ballot. When the second week rolls around, that is known as campaign week where you are able to hang up posters and promote. During this week there also tends to be a candidate mixer for classmates to meet you and they get to know your platform and ideas for the upcoming year. The third and final week is voting week! That is pretty much how elections are ran here at Washington!
Spring fling! free Rita’s, cotton candy, popcorn, and bouncy houses. Yes.
I was thinking about running for SGA is it mostly who's popular who wins like high school. Or if a regular person runs they'll have a fair chance to win?
Hello! Excellent question!
It depends on which branch you decide to run in. WC has three branches of student government, structured similarly to the U.S. government where we have Legislative, Executive, and Judicial branches. The Legislative branch consists of a Senate and a Speaker of the Senate. The Executive Board consists of a President, Vice President, Financial Controller, Parliamentarian and several secretaries. The Judicial Branch consists the Honor Board and Honor Board Chair. There is also an off branch for class officers where each class elects a President, VP, Treasurer and Secretary. So elections vary according to each office. Was there anything in particular you were interested in?
