Dear Fellow Students,
One of the key values that UVA prides itself on is its commitment to student self-governance. Student self-governance adds much to our University’s distinct culture. In class/school councils, Student Council, Honor, and UJC, student leaders have the opportunity to make their mark on UVA and its future. If you would like to make an impact here, I highly encourage you to consider running for an elected position in the Spring 2020 University-Wide Elections.
If you are interested in running for an office, you must do one of the following things: attend a Candidate Information Session hosted by the University Board of Elections OR take the online candidate eligibility quiz, which can be found at uvavote.com under the “Candidates” tab.
The first Candidate Information Session will be held on:
Tuesday, December 3, at 7:30 p.m. in Monroe 116.
Two additional information sessions will be held during the first two weeks of the spring semester in January. The candidate eligibility quiz will remain open over winter break and will close on January 27. This is meant to give potential candidates as much time as possible to decide whether they want to run and to prepare for it.
Only those students who attend either an information session or complete the online quiz will gain access to the registration form that is required for candidacy.
The 2020 Elections Calendar, Candidate Information Session Presentation, and the UBE Rules and Regulations are all located on uvavote.com. These are the main documents needed to complete the online eligibility quiz. Additional helpful documents will be uploaded over the course of winter break, so please check our website frequently for updates.
Should you have any questions, please contact email@example.com.
Best of luck to you as finals season approaches, and I hope to work with you in the elections next semester.
Chair, University Board of Elections
