The Fall 2018 Special Election is officially underway as the office of the External Vice President of Statewide Affairs (EVPSA) still remains vacant. Students can vote on GOLD from 8 a.m. Oct. 15  until 4 p.m. on Oct. 18, when voting will close and the new EVPSA will be announced.

Madeline Loudon, a third year history of public policy major and the runner up of last year’s Spring Elections, is the sole candidate on the ballot. Loudon is currently running as an independent candidate.

The special election rules dictate that a 16 percent voter threshold must be met in order to legitimize the results of the election. If the threshold isn’t satisfied by Oct. 18, Associated Students Elections Board has stipulated that they will extend the voting period by one week. If the voter threshold still isn’t met by then, the EVPSA office will remain vacant until the 2019 A.S. Spring Elections.

The EVPSA is responsible for representing student voice in issues such as fighting tuition hikes.
