SoCos Presedent Election & Raymond President Appointment
This Fall, there are two positions on the VSA Council that are not definitively filled. The SoCos are having a recall election for their President and Raymond's President has resigned. Look below for details on the specific positions!
South Commons President
When a petition for recall is filed, the Board of Elections and Appointments verifies the petition and ensures that it was signed by at least 25% of the positions constituency. The petition for the SoCos recall included just over 25% of the consitutencies' signatures. As a result, an election must be held to determine if the current SoCos President will continue in the position throughout the year. Only current residents of the SoCos are eligible to run. The timeline and link to file are included below.
Students may file using the VSA's Standard Filing Form.
