UF students who want to get involved with Student Government will have their shot Friday.

The qualifying interview round for students hoping to run for a Student Senate seat will continue on Monday and Tuesday, said Sarah Krantz, SG's supervisor of elections.

The qualifying will take place from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day in room 284 of the Reitz Union.

Krantz said students could come within that time period on any of the three days. They also must bring their Gator 1 cards to confirm they are full-time students.

As for the qualifying process, it's left in the hands of students, she said. Students tell election officials what party they would like to be a candidate for. Afterward an interview with the party is arranged.

Krantz said she didn't want parties to be present in the qualifying room.

"My biggest concern is ensuring that nobody harasses the students," Krantz said. "The parties shouldn't be seeking out students. Students should seek them."

Five parties have registered for the election. Each party can take up to 47 candidates, which is the number of Senate seats open for the fall election Oct. 2-3, she said.
