The Student Government Association elections were held between 8 a.m. Monday and 5 p.m. Friday last week. The senate will be filling 11 positions for this election. Students can place their votes on EaglesEye.
According to Student Life coordinator Zeke Sorenson, four students will be elected from each school at Laramie County Community College. The senate will pick the treasurer and secretary. LCCC students decide who will become student body president and vice president.
Students elected hold their positions for one academic year. In the spring the main election is held for those returning to senate, however they still have an election in the fall to include incoming freshmen.
According to Sorenson, LCCC only has five members returning to senate for their second year: Derek Goldfuss, Brian Keller Griffin, Jordan Liley, Chris Smith and Sebastian Swing. LCCC’s constitution calls for 16 senators.
Students can vote for candidates on EaglesEye via a pop-up ballot that will have information about SGA and information about each candidate. From there, students can cast their votes for who they want to represent them in this academic year. The winners will be announced Sept. 18 on EaglesEye, and hard copies of the list will be posted in the lobby of the College Community Center.
