In three weeks, you will have the opportunity to elect 50 student senators representing the various residence halls and the surrounding Gainesville community.
As your supervisor of elections, I encourage you to learn more about Student Government, the political parties, the candidates and the election process.
Today is the last opportunity to interview to be a candidate with a political party.
You can visit Room 362 in the J. Wayne Reitz Union if you are interested in becoming a part of Student Senate.
Election days are Oct. 1 and 2 from 8:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m., and we hope to offer 12 polling locations around campus. Please remember that in the upcoming election you will be able to vote for candidates who represent you based off of where you live. Please take the time to ensure that you have the correct local address on file in myUFL.
