Elections Commission


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

  • Fairly and transparently oversees Stanford student government elections
  • Establishes elections policies with help from students and ASSU leadership
  • Educates candidates about election rules
  • Informs student groups about the Annual Grants approval process
  • Helps voters learn about candidates and issues

ASSU elections matter to every Stanford student because they are the chance to choose how we spend millions of dollars and select the leaders of the student body. The Elections Commission ensures that every student has a fair and free opportunity to vote on these issues.

Information for Voters

Voters will be able to view information about candidates, slates, and issues in the Elections Handbook. On Election Day, each eligible voter will receive an email with an individualized link to their personal ballot.  For President & Vice President, voters will rank slates in order of preference. For Undergraduate Senate elections, you can choose to vote for up to 15 candidates. For Graduate Student Council, voters may vote for a number of candidates according to the size of their district. The elections results will be announced shortly after the election.
