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.
All candidates must attend one of the required candidate orientations on TBD. Confirmation of your candidacy will be sent via the email you provided on your application. Failure to attend shall be sufficient cause for disqualification. Excuses, with supporting documentation, shall be submitted in writing or by email to the email@example.com email at least 72 hours before the meeting and a member of the Elections Commission will notify you if it has been approved. Proxies will not be accepted. Candidates must also attend two election events (i.e. forums, debates, or mixers).
An itemized report of all campaign expenditures shall be submitted to ASI 48 hours after the closing of the general election (excludes weekend days). The itemized report shall list all expenses, including donated or in-kind materials or services, and include receipts for all campaign materials. The expenditures of a candidate shall not exceed $500.00, including the value calculated for donated or in-kind materials or services. The ASI General Election Packet contains additional information regarding Expense Reports. Please read the packet carefully.
ASI publishes an Election Guide in the campus newspaper during the election. Candidates who wish ASI to publish their campaign platforms (statements) may do so by submitting their platforms with the Elections Application. All platform information is subjected to editing for libel, length (see Elections Application Part II for maximum word lengths), and suitable/proper language. Platforms exceeding the maximum word length will be cut back to conform to the limits delineated above. All information provided on the application is subject to verification.
