A brief guide to help you understand LUCC elections

By Mina Seo

Lawrence University Community Council (LUCC) will hold the annual executive election for the student government’s president and vice-president on Jan. 19. Any student can vote for the candidates from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. in the Warch Campus Center and from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. in the Alexander Gymnasium and Conservatory. As soon as the candidates submit their applications by Jan. 14, they can start their campaigning activities through various media.

After the three-day period to contest election results passes, the outcome will be released through media sources. The official election result will be announced at the LUCC General Council meeting at 4:45 p.m. on Monday, Jan. 25.

After creating a cabinet and completing their transitional training, the elected candidates can exercise their power starting March 7. Once they are elected, the new president and vice-president will be responsible for coordinating various campus events and supporting student organizations as well as administering legislative procedures and student budgets.

LUCC President and senior Wesley Varughese has noted that he hopes students vote in the upcoming election just as they did when 50 percent of the students cast their votes in the previous presidential election.
