How do ASWWU Elections work?

Each Spring Term, Western Students elect ASWWU Government Officials responsible for representing the ASWWU in shared governance of the University the following academic year.

Ballots include elected positions on both the Student Senate and AS Executive Board along with any topics requiring a vote of ASWWU members on issues important to students (e.g. ASWWU Constitution Updates, applicable S&A Fee renewals/updates).

Want to run for an elected position? Check out the current Elections Code to find out how.

Voter Guides for the upcoming election will be available after the end of the candidate filing period for this year (Late April/Early May).
