Spring Quarter is slowly winding down, but that does not mean we have been slacking in our coverage! With Memorial Day and virtual commencement right around the corner, I wanted to ease us into this year’s Associated Students of UC San Diego (ASUCSD) elections. Candidates have spent Week 7 campaigning through social media, and this week the student body gets to cast votes.
While student government operates on a much smaller scale than other forms of government, it is a vital part of the UCSD community. It is also on this level of government that we, the students, have a voice in choosing who represents us to administrators and politicians. This is our way to have a direct say in what happens to our campus, and as one of the media outlets at UCSD, it is our duty to help you access all this information so that you can make the most informed decision when you cast your ballot this week.
This guide will go over the roles of each executive office, basic slate platform information, and all candidates running this year.
Remember: Voting is now open and closes on Friday, May 22. Election results will be available at 6:30 p.m. on Friday, May 22. You can vote on TritonLink.
This week, The Triton’s Editorial Board has released endorsements for executive candidates and will be moderating the Presidential Debate today. So tune in or read, but most importantly, go out and vote for your student body representatives today!
Ready to vote,
