How Does Voting and the Ballot Work?
This ballot, authenticated only to students at Wichita State and protected under your usual log-in information, is secured and uniquely designed for each student. Each ballot will include the following things:

Please review all the information so that you are making an informed decision. We have also provided you the chance to abstain from voting should you choose to.
- The Candidates for Student Senators in which you are able to vote for. You might notice that the ballot might not have any names; that means a student did not run for that position. BUT you can still write-in a peers name if you think that would make a great Senator. We have included information about that these two roles as well as information about the Candidates. Please review all the information so that you are making an informed decision. We have also provided you the chance to abstain from voting should you choose to.
Want to Write-In Someone?
A write-in candidate is a member of the Association whose name does not appear on the ballot, but for whom voters may vote nonetheless by writing in the person's name. Any write-in candidate who does not meet the qualifications outlined for holding office will be disqualified and/or removed by the Election Commission. To write someone in, please add their name to the a "Write-In" line on the ballot below. We encourage you to use this tool if you know of a peer (or even yourself) who would make a great Senator.
