On Tuesday, May 1st at 5:00 PM, elections for the Executive Board for the Graduate Student Council (GSC) were held in Dartmouth Hall. Moderated by the lively Executive Board, each candidate delivered a two-minute speech to the election’s eligible voters, and answered three questions asked by the voters. Votes were cast by secret ballot and were tallied by volunteers from the outgoing Executive Board.
While all graduate students are welcome to run in Executive Board elections, votes are cast by Departmental Representatives who have fulfilled both the attendance and volunteer requirements outlined in the GSC constitution: to vote, Departmental Representatives must attend all council meetings (two absences allowed), and volunteer at two GSC events.
Thank you all Departmental Representatives who voted in the 2012 Executive Board Elections!
