The SGA Senate approved changes to election procedures made by the SGA
Election Commission in a meeting Tuesday night.
Election Commissioner Melanie Wynn presented the changes, which are
effective immediately, to the senate.
Polls will be open for early voting on April 6 at five campus locations:
Humanities, Ayres Hall, UC Plaza, Presidential Complex and Greve/Massey
CPC Senator Ayappa Biddanda raised the issue of moving the Greve/Massey
location back to Strong Hall, where it was originally planned to be.
Keeping the location there would make it easier for students from the Fort
Sanders area to vote, Biddanda said.
"We should be about inclusion," Biddanda said.
The Strong Hall location would be more accessible for people who go to
Strong to eat at Sophie's Place, Senator Corey Johns said.
The Election Commission decided to keep the location at the Massey/Greve
courtyard after the senate voted 18-19 in its favor.
Templates for advertising party interest meetings were also discussed at
the Senate meeting. The proposed templates would list the party's name, as
well as the date, time and location of the meeting.
The idea of templates was done away with after debate. The new guidelines
state that party candidates may post a pre-election flyer with the party
name, date, time and location of the meeting.
