With SGA elections coming up, students may be wondering how to even go about running for a spot on the board.
According to Miles Post, a current SGA member, students have to come to the office of student life and pick up a candidate’s package that requires a certain amount of signatures.
“That’s not them getting the votes, that’s the public saying ‘okay we want you to run’,” commented Post.
Students also have to be able to meet the criteria and if they’re elected into being part of the SGA, each spot is explained as far as to what the duties are.
Like last year, there will be senate debates, executive debates, and then SGA vice president and president debates. All of which will take place in the common area outside of the cafeteria.
Campaigning will be starting March 28 at 8 a.m. and will be allowed for two weeks, after which elections will be held.
The elections will go on for four days starting April 13 at 8 a.m. to April 16 at 4 p.m. and students will vote by using the insideBC portion of the Bakersfield College website. Times and dates for other information regarding elections can be found in the ad SGA placed with The Renegade Rip.
All of the candidate meetings will take place in the Executive boardroom that is located next to the office of student life.
Only three of the current SGA members are running again for office, Post will not be one of them.
All seats are re-opened, making 23 total spots available to incoming members for the fall.
