The bulletin boards in Proctor and Davis may not be plastered with campaign posters this year, but the Student Government Association (SGA) and Community Council (CC) elections for the 2020–2021 academic year are proceeding as planned, taking place this Thursday and Friday.

Students will choose between three candidates for president and two for co-chair. Varsha Vijayakumar ’20 and Roni Lezama ’22 currently hold these positions.

Voters will also have the chance to vote for their two class “representatives,” the new name for the SGA’s senators. For the first time, there will be only six of these vacant positions this spring, since the SGA voted to remove the five commons senator positions this February. This year’s two Feb representatives were chosen earlier this spring.

The Campus will publish a story with information about the candidates for SGA president and CC co-chair this week.
