The annual Students’ Association election is coming up on March 24th and 25th.

Petitions are available in the Students’ Association office along Main Street in the University Student Union. Learn about the petition process and find more information on the SA website.

Request a Petition Electronically

Students who are temporarily located remotely (e.g., off-campus internship, study abroad, etc.) or who cannot pick up a printed petition in the Students' Association office may obtain an electronic petition to print on their own. Signatures must be collected on a printed petition and cannot be collected electronically, but this allows students who are unable to pick up a printed petition in the SA office to print their own petition.

Contact the Students' Association Vice President to request an electronic petition packet.
