Election Information Meetings
There will be two optional in-person information meetings this year! The first one will be held during Welcome Week on Sunday, August 27th at 2:30 pm in the May Room of Wilson Commons (4th floor). There will be refreshments provided, and you will also have the opportunity to talk to many members of SA Government at this event. The second will be held on Sunday, September 3rd at Douglass 401. You will also have the opportunity to talk to many members of SA Government at these meetings in addition to learning about the election process and rules. If you are not able to attend either of these meetings, please watch the elections information video instead, as this information will be needed in order to pass the elections quiz.
