This week, the FHSU Student Government Association is holding their yearly elections.
During this time, students will have the opportunity to vote for the new President and Vice President of the SGA as well as who will represent the colleges as student senators.
This year, there are a total of twenty-one candidates running for positions in SGA, including the positions of President and Vice President. This is not including the students who are conducting write-in campaigns.
Of the twenty-one students, many come from the College of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences, with a total of ten candidates running for half as many seats. Each college has at least one candidate running for the representative seats in the Student Senate.
However, those who do not win seats to represent their college in the SGA have the option of later becoming Senators-at-large.
Brad DeMers, a sophomore from the College of Education, and Michael Musgrove, a junior from the College of Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences, are running together for the positions of President and Vice President, respectively.
Both candidates have experience serving with the SGA, Musgrove having spent three years in the Senate and DeMers having spent two while currently acting as chair for multiple Senate committees.
Similarly to SGA elections in years past, DeMers and Musgrove make up the only ticket for the executive positions.
The election opens Wednesday, April 17 on TigerLink. In-person voting will also be available at the Memorial Union.
During this time, students will be able to vote for the senators to represent their personal colleges as well as for the executive positions.
Voting closes Thursday, April 18. The results of the election will be announced by @fhsusga which is the Student Senate’s Twitter account.
