Today, April 6th, 2022, is the last day to vote in this semester’s SGA (Student Government Association) elections, which is the governing body of all students at Florida Polytechnic University. SGA is responsible for allocating funding to clubs and events like Florida Polycon.    

Students can either vote in-person at the Southern (dorm-side) entrance to the IST, or virtually by using the link: https://floridapoly.campuslabs.com/engage/submitter/election/start/536126.

Just like prior years, voting happens using a ranked choice system. That is, rather than just voting for a single candidate, voters can rank their votes for all candidates. For example, if 3 candidates are running for a position, a voter could give each candidate ranks 1, 2, and 3 in order of who they most prefer. The least popular candidates are eliminated, and their respective votes are redistributed to the next ranked choice until a candidate has the majority.

Many positions this year are uncontested. The following is the list of who is running, and for what positions.
