Making a Difference in the SGA Elections

SGA continues search for a way to increase voting amongst students. There are currently around 6,000 students attending Missouri Western State University, and last year, only 781 students voted in the SGA elections.  SGA hopes to get every student at Missouri Western to vote in this year’s upcoming election. The goal they plan to set forth is to ensure that an overall majority of the students to turn out to vote since two candidates have filed for President. Members of the SGA are making sure that students are aware of the election whenever they set foot on campus. “We have a lot of posters hung up around campus to let students know that the election is coming up and how they can vote,” Jacob Scott, SGA president said.  “We also hope to advertise in the Griffon News.” Signs and posters will be all over campus come election week, but the SGA also plans to advertise in more modern ways as well.  We’re really trying to push social media this year, Scott said. “We’ll definitely be sending out an email to students to remind them of the election as well,” director of student relations, Morgan Lindgren said. But those aren’t the only methods that the SGA will be using to reach students on campus.  Members also hope to talk to students personally about the election. “We are also going to be doing some face-to-face advertising,” Monterio Seewood, student senator said.  “The SGA hopes to inform as many students as possible about the election, and talking to people is a great way to get the word out.” Students will have many reminders when it comes to voting for new and returning members of the SGA.  With various candidates running for different positions within the student government, current members hope that any new student leaders bring interesting ideas and perspectives to their positions. “SGA is really looking forward to positive new student leaders,” Seewood said. Morgan Lindgren agrees, but stresses that it really isn’t up to any one individual. “It’s really up to the students, but we’re all hoping to get some passionate leaders in SGA,” Lindgren said. Students will be able to vote online at the Missouri Western State University homepage.  Those without Internet can be provided with an actual ballot, Scott said. The SGA encourages all students to go online and vote in this year’s election.  Campaigning for the election begins on February 27, and students will be able to vote on March 6 and 7.

    Your favorite reason seemed to be on the web the easiest thing
    to be aware of. I say to you, I certainly get annoyed while people think about worries that they just do not know about.
