Student Government Elections

The ISU Student Government elections are held annually in the Spring for Senators and Executive offices. Every student is represented by two senators — One for their residency and one for their college. Students wishing to fill senate offices must reside in their residency constituency for the following year or must be enrolled in the college they are wishing to run for.

Student Government has 15 constituencies, one for all colleges on campus (including the Graduate College and Veterinary Medicine) and one for all of the residency constituencies including Campustown, Frederiksen Court, Interfraternity, Panhellenic, Off-Campus, Residence Halls and SUV. 

Any Iowa State student who is enrolled at least part-time is eligible to run for Executive office or a Senate seat. The student body will be able to vote for the executive office and the candidates running to represent the constituency council they are in on vote.iastate.edu. Feel free to contact the Election Commissioner for any questions.
