General Elections

MAKE HISTORY HERE

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.

WHY YOU SHOULD VOTE

It’s important for all students to vote for who they believe will best serve them as the official student voice. These future Board of Directors will advocate on your behalf and assist in improving campus culture. It is your duty and your responsibility to vote for those who you believe can accomplish this goal to the fullest. In addition, all students who vote will automatically be entered to win various prizes dependent on how many students actually vote. The more students who vote in the Elections, the more prizes that are unlocked for you to potentially win!
