Associated Students elections use the ranked-choice voting system, which helps select a single winner from a field of more than two candidates. Voters are asked to rank candidates in order of preference. Voters may rank different candidates for each position. When votes are tallied, candidates who receive over 50 percent of the first-choice votes will be declared winners. In races where a winner cannot be determined using first-choice votes, voters’ ranked-choices will be tabulated. This system identifies winning candidates without the need for a special run-off election. FairVote.org explains ranked voting with this video.

A full voter’s guide is available for download here.

Students will be contacted via email with more information on how to access their ballots. ##
