2017 Election Results


Dear Stanford Students,

The Elections Commission has been contacted by students who are concerned that they have not been sent a ballot for the 2017 ASSU General Election.


In order to verify who is eligible to vote, the Commission uses only the most recent enrollment data from the University Registrar to determine eligibility to vote.


If you have not received a ballot, it is most likely because University enrollment data does not reflect you as a student at-status during Winter 2017 - the most recent enrollment data compiled by the University Registrar. In such cases, the Commission cannot verify your status as a student and thus cannot provide you a ballot.


The Elections Commission has taken note of this issue. We can assure you that we are currently working on figuring out how to best get this resolved. We will provide updates as available.


In the meantime, please contact the Commission with any such concerns.

Best,
Elections Commission
