Event Description:

Voting for the 2019-2020 ASG General Elections begins Monday, March 4 at 9:00 a.m. CT. Voting will conclude on Wednesday, March 6th at 4:00 p.m. CT. Students can vote at asg.uark.edu/elections or by paper ballot in the Office of Student Activities, Arkansas Union A665 during regular business hours (8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. CT) while voting is taking place.

 

Polling stations will also be available to students to vote at from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. March 4-5, and from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. March 6 at the following locations:

  • Mullins Library
  • Honors College in Gearhart Hall
  • Multicultural Center in the Arkansas Union

Students who vote at the polling stations can receive a sticker at the time they vote.

 

All currently-enrolled undergraduate University of Arkansas, Fayetteville, students are eligible to vote. Information about candidates is available at asg.uark.edu/elections. Ballots will be presented to students as follows:

  • All undergraduate students are eligible to vote on Referendum Item 1, which asks students, “Would you be in favor of a 2.5% increase in the student activity fee per year for 5 consecutive years in order to better fund student programs, such as Headliners Concert Committee, University Programs, the Volunteer Action Center, Distinguished Lectures Committee, Safe Ride, and the Associated Student Government?”
  • All undergraduate students are eligible to vote on Referendum Item 2, which asks students, “Would you be in favor of approving an amendment, proposed and passed by the ASG Senate, to update ASG Constitutional language regarding senate seat allocation during election; reflecting the correct administrative capabilities in classifying students?”
  • All undergraduate students are eligible to vote for Student Body President, Vice President, Secretary, and Treasurer,
  • All undergraduate students will be eligible to vote in the ASG Senate election based on their primary college of enrollment.

 

The ASG General Election will ask students to vote for their student government President, Vice President, Treasurer, and Secretary. Per the ASG election rules, candidates for President and Vice President run together as a single voting option while candidates for Secretary and Treasurer run separately, even if they are on the same ticket. This means that voters will have three decisions to make when voting for ASG Executives:

  1. ASG President and Vice President – On one ticket, student leaders Jared Pinkerton and Sadie Bryant are running for President and Vice President together. On another ticket running for President and Vice President features student leaders Mariam Siddiqui and Haley Goodebiddle running together. Another ticket has student leaders Maria Calderon and Shay Longmate running for President and Vice President together.
  2. ASG Secretary - Student leaders John Hedgecock, Jack Skidmore, and Leyla Coronel Moreno are running for ASG Secretary.
  3. ASG Treasurer – Kevin Smith Jr., Kirsten James, and Arianna Kiaei are the student leaders running for ASG Treasurer.

 

The Senate portion of the election will be a college-based election. Candidates for Senate are organized by their primary college of enrollment and only students enrolled in that college will be able to vote for those candidates. Seats in the 2019-2020 ASG Senate are allocated based on the total student enrollment this semester in each of the colleges. In this election some colleges have more seats than candidates. Unfilled seats will be filled in the Fall 2019 Senate Vacancy Election.

 

The seats available in each college and Senate candidates for those seats are as follows:

  • Dale Bumpers College of Agricultural Food & Life Sciences (4 seats available)
