ASUS Elections

Interested in representing the Arts and Science student body? Run in the ASUS Elections!

The Arts & Science Undergraduate Society holds two main election seasons each year; one in the fall semester and another in the winter semester. During these periods, many of the student representatives for ASUS, the Senate and the AMS are elected. The elections timeline follows four periods, the Nomination Period, the Verification Period, the Campaign Period and the Voting Days. During the Nomination Period, students wanting to run for a position gather signatures of nomination from their eligible classmates in order to have candidacy. Following the verification of those signatures, campaigning extends for about a week. After the Campaign Period, students receive an email and can vote online.

The Winter election will take place in January 2018. All Arts and Science, Concurrent Education and Computing students are eligible to participate, provided they have paid the ASUS Society fee.
