Through the oversight of the ASWU Vice President, candidates and their campaigns are vetted to ensure adherence to the expectations of Willamette University and the ASWU Constitution. The first round of elections is that for ASWU Executive offices, during which the entire student body votes for their favorable candidate. After elections for ASWU Executive, class-specific elections take place for the election of the five class senators. In the case that an executive officer is not able to fulfill their duties before the end of their term, the constitutional line of presidential succession will ensue. If succession is not feasible, or in the case that a senator cannot fulfill their duties before the end of their term, special elections will take place.
Below are documents of interest for those students considering running for an ASWU Elected office. Any questions regarding the election process should be directed to the ASWU Vice President.
