About the Elections Commission

The ASSU Elections Commission is an independent body of the ASSU that:

Oversees Stanford elections fairly and transparently
Sets elections policies with help from students and ASSU leadership
Educates candidates about elections policies
Informs student groups about the Annual Grants approval process
Helps voters learn about issues and candidates efficiently
Elections matter to every Stanford student because they are your chance to choose how we spend millions of dollars and pick the future leaders of the student body. The Elections Commission ensures that every student has a fair and free opportunity to vote on the issues that matter to them.

Information for Voters
Prior to the election in April, voters will be able to view information about candidates, slates, and issues under in our ASSU Voter's Pamphlet. Please also take some time to read the Commission's voter information guide. On Election Day, each eligible voter will receive an email with an individualized link to their personal ballot. For Senate elections, you can choose to vote for up to 15 candidates.  For Executive positions, voters will use a Ranked Voting system where you will be asked to rank Executive Slates depending upon your preferences.  The elections results will be announced several days after the election.
