State Government Elections
Announcement made for the 2015 GSB Elections!
The GSB election timeline has been announced for the 2015 elections. Elections will take place on March 3 and 4, and the winners will be announced on March 6th. Candidates interested in running for Senate or President/Vice-President need to attend a candidate information session before being able to have their name on the official ballot.
The Government of the Student Body elections are held annually in the spring for Senate and President/Vice-President candidates. Each student is represented by two Senators–one for their residency and one for their college–so students wishing to fill these offices must either reside in the residency constituency or be enrolled in the college they are wishing to run for. GSB has 15 constituencies which include all of the colleges on campus (including the Graduate College and Veterinary Medicine) and the residency constituencies which are: Campustown, Frederiksen Court, Interfraternity, Panhellenic, Off-Campus, Residence Halls and Schilleter University Village.
Any Iowa State student who is enrolled at least part-time is eligible to run for either President or Vice President. The President and Vice President run on a slate and are voted on by the entire student body. On election day, students are able to vote by going to vote.iastate.edu.
