Beginning March 13, San Diego State University students have the opportunity to select the university’s next Associated Students leaders.

The spring general elections decide the next A.S. president, executive vice president, vice president of external relations, vice president of financial affairs, vice president of university affairs and 33 other positions, including representatives for SDSU’s seven colleges and graduate students. This year, there are 85 candidates, including write-in candidates, running for positions.

Voting started on SDSU WebPortal at 8 a.m. on Monday, March 13 and ends at 7 p.m. on Thursday, March 16. Election results will be announced at 8 p.m. on Thursday, March 16 in Montezuma Hall on the second floor of the Conrad Prebys Aztec Student Union.

In 2016, more than 6,000 students cast ballots in the general elections, which equated to 20 percent of the student body. This year, the A.S. election committee encourages students to get involved with the election process by casting votes on SDSU WebPortal.
