About the Elections Commission
The ASSU Elections Commission is an independent body of the ASSU that
- sets elections policies with help from students, the ASSU Executive, the Undergraduate Senate, the Graduate Student Council, and SAL;
- educates candidates about ballot requirements and elections policies;
- informs student groups requesting Special Fees about the approval process;
- helps voters learn about issues and candidates efficiently and without waste; and
- oversees Stanford elections fairly and transparently.
Elections matter to every Stanford student because they're your chance to choose how we spend millions of dollars and pick the future leaders of the student body. The Elections Commission ensures that every student has a fair and free opportunity to vote on the issues that matter to them.
