How and where to vote for the 2022 USG and GPSA elections

0

Vote for 2022 Undergraduate Student Government and Association of Graduate and Professional Students elections will be held March 29 and 30 for all ASU campuses. USG election results will be announced on March 31 on the student government website, and GPSA election results will be announced on April 3.

ASU undergraduates will vote for candidates who will represent them in leadership positions and senators who will serve them in the USG Senate for their colleges. Students vote based on the campus and college they attend.

Graduate students will vote for candidates in a variety of leadership positions, as well as members of the assembly to serve their quorums.

The presidents who make up the executive tickets for each campus and GPSA will form the next Council of Presidents. The COP brings together the presidents of the four campuses and they work in collaboration with each other.

All four ASU campuses have undisputed running USG executive tickets for the first time in at least nine years. The GPSA has three candidates running for the post of president and contested elections for the other five leadership positions.

USG provides a number of student-run services and champions student initiatives by passing resolutions. The USG decides how student activity fee funding will be distributed to ASU clubs and organizations, and voices student concerns at the university, local, state, and national levels.

In a new move for USG for all campuses, voting will work by having a link for each undergraduate student directing them directly to their campus-specific election. Students will log in using their ASU ID and the ballot will load immediately instead of selecting a campus.

There is a separate link to vote in the GPSA electionswhich is online only.

There will also be in-person polling stations on all four campuses. Polling stations are all open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

On the Tempe campus, there will be two polling stations, one at Tooker House and another at the Memorial Union.

On the downtown Phoenix campus, there will be a polling place on Taylor Mall.

On the Polytechnic campus, there will be two polling stations, one in Lantana Hall and another on the Student Union lawn.

On Monday evening, USG Elections Commissioner Preetham Myathari said he did not know where the West Campus polls would be located, but expected to find out by Monday evening or Tuesday morning.

To vote at polling places in person, students can scan QR codes with their smartphones that direct them to the voting page.

Students can learn all about the USG and GPSA election candidates with The State Press’s 2022 Student Government Election Guide.

In last year’s elections, more than 4,200 students voted for leadership positions across all campuses. In 2020, more than 6,900 students from all campuses participated in the elections. In 2019, more than 5,300 students voted across all campuses in USG elections.
