University Voting

An Overview

Voting at universities involves students, faculty, and alumni. These votes encompass a range of decisions such as student government association elections and club votes. During this process, both the student leadership and the staff are responsible for ensuring high standards so that their participation can continue.

Managing the Voting Process

Organizing the process of voting can be a challenge due to a segmented and geographically diverse voter base. It creates difficulties such as:

  • Updating addresses or organizing polling locations
  • Allocating time, people, and resources to facilitate manual voting
  • Voters belonging to specific categories with their own matters and candidates

Voter Segmentation Challenges

Besides elections for overall leadership, many positions will represent departments, campuses, and residential buildings. The voter base is often divided into groups based on year or academic status, with specific candidates or questions. This creates even more work such as:

  • Adding up results and ballots for each category
  • Organizing and separating ballot results by group
  • Making sure both paper and electronic work are integrated as a whole, instead of two disjointed tabulations
