Amidst a global pandemic, this year’s Associated Students Spring Quarter elections are being conducted entirely online. Each of the parties has adapted to solely remote campaigning, boosting their social media presences in an attempt to reach undergraduates scattered across the world.
The Nexus put together this interactive showing each of the candidates running in this year’s election. Each senatorial candidate filled out an 18-question questionnaire, in which they were asked about their platforms, what they hope to accomplish while in office and why they are running: http://dailynexus.com/interactives/aselections2020/
We also conducted hours-long interviews with each of the 11 executive candidates over Zoom; our endorsements of the executive candidates can be viewed below:
Voting opens Monday, April 20 at 8 a.m. on G.O.L.D., and ends Thursday, April 23 at at 4 p.m. If the voting threshold of 20% is not met by April 23, the voting period will be extended for one week. Results will be posted to the A.S. Election Board website.
