SUS Elections- Turnout and Endorsements

Posted by: | March 12, 2009 | Comments Off on SUS Elections- Turnout and Endorsements

It would seem that SUS elections are facing a record-low turnout this year. So far, voter turnout is only about 1/3 of what it was last year.

Vote in GSS elections!

Ah, what’s that in the air? It smells like the seemingly never ending elections cycle. While the AMS elections are sort-of-but-not-really-over, GSS elections are still going strong. This is a reminder that if you are a grad student, please vote! The GSS could do great things, but you need to make sure it has a […]

I’ve got them up here; there might be a commentary post up later but it seems sort of silly given what’s going on.
