Elections Board & Council
The Elections Council helps with the coordination and organization of elections procedure throughout the year. Elections council members attend bi-weekly meetings and work as a team with members of the SGA Marketing & Engagement team to effectively publicize elections in both the Spring and the Fall. Applicants must be a Sophomore, Junior or Senior in good academic standing (2.5 Cumulative GPA or better) and be enrolled from Fall ’15 – Spring ’16 (Summer attendance or enrollment not mandatory). Selected applicants will be ineligible to run for any position or support any candidate in both Fall and Spring Elections. This is a year-long position with time commitment increasing the weeks before Homecoming and again from November to February. Duties are listed in the SGA Code of Laws, Section 702.5.3-702.5.20.
The Elections Board is the ruling body that ensures all elections are run fairly and in accordance with the regulations set forth by the SGA Constitution and Code of Laws. Applicants must be a Junior or Senior in good academic standing (2.5 Cumulative GPA or better) and be enrolled from Fall ’15-Spring ’16 (Summer attendance or enrollment not mandatory). Applicants cannot be involved in any other position in SGA. Selected members of the Elections Board will be ineligible to run for any position or support any candidate in both Fall and Spring Elections. This is a year-long position with a time commitment heavy during the weeks leading up to and during elections. Duties are listed in the SGA Code of Laws, Section 702.4.
The Judicial Branch maintains jurisdiction over the SGA Constitution and Code of Laws, the governing documents of Auburn’s student body. It is the duty of Judicial to hear any cases involving potential violations of these documents. The implementation of this branch allows for a stronger student body voice as well as the creation of a system of checks and balances within SGA. The Judicial Branch consists of the Chief Justice, 6 Associate Justices, and the Attorney General.
