General Elections


As the official student voice of CSU Dominguez Hills, it is important to speak up and vote for the students you believe will best represent you and advocate on your behalf. The students you vote in will be traveling to the Cal State Student Association meetings, where they strive to improve the lives of the CSU students. These same students will also travel to meet with State Senators to inform them of hardships you may be enduring and how these can be fixed. Hosted by the Elections Commission of ASI during the spring semester, all students are invited to apply to have their name on the ballot.
