Missouri State University’s Elections Commission is currently seeking student commissioners interested in working with elections on campus. The Elections Commission plays an important role on campus, as it is the oversight for student body elections each spring.
The Elections Commission spends the fall semester reviewing the Elections Manual, determining a timeline for elections, and researching ways to increase voter turnout.
During the spring semester the Commission reviews petitions for candidacy, evaluates possible violations of the Elections Manual, and validates election results. The Commission also works with the Wyrick Commission to determine the way in which Wyrick Proposals are phrased on the ballot.
Student commissioners cannot currently be a part of Student Government Association or serving as the President or Vice President for any other student organization.
Anyone interested in joining the Elections Commission is encouraged to contact Tara Hammer, Chief Elections Commissioner, at Hammer636@live.missouristate.edu prior to October 7, 2011.
For more information, please contact Paige Oxendine, Chief Communications Officer, at Oxendine100@live.missouristate.edu.
