Student senator elections to begin

Positions open up within ASU board

The Associated Student Union will be giving its current senators an opportunity to take on new leadership roles in the upcoming ASU election.
The campaign period will begin Thursday and end April 18. Voting will be held between April 21 and 30.
Candidates for the election will be announced on Thursday at the start of the campaigning period.
All CCC students who are currently enrolled will be eligible to vote, Student Life coordinator and ASU adviser Kelly Ramos said.
The ballots will be filled out electronically and the electronic form will be sent out via the district's InSite Portal announcement and mass email message system. There will also be various voting booths located around campus, Ramos said.
"The election is important because it determines who will be leading the ASU," Kirsten Kwon, ASU director of external affairs said. "The ASU is responsible for coordinating the events and activities for students over the next year."
Kwon said all positions are open and that all senators have to rerun. Positions include ASU president, executive vice president, president of clubs, secretary, director of public affairs and treasurer.
The ASU Election Committee met Monday to develop strategies, which it hopes will be implemented to better reach the CCC student body and in turn get more participation.
"Social media will play a key role," Ysrael Condori, current ASU president said. Condori discussed how Facebook, Twitter and Instagram would be used in raising student awareness of the ASU and the ASU election.
"We have a Facebook page that students can follow and we're thinking about taking pictures of the candidates and posting them on Instagram.
"It is also a great opportunity for the ASU to get closer to students and get students engaged," Condori said. "It creates a culture of involvement that students aren't used to."
Although the election is primarily toward active ASU members, other students are encouraged to join.
"We have a number of senator positions open," Kwon said.
