April 23: The voting period beings at 8 a.m.

April 25: The voting period ends at 8 a.m. & Results announced at 12 p.m.

The ASI President represents the general student body and acts as the official representative of ASI to the Cal Poly administration and the public. The Board of Directors is comprised of representatives from each college that serve as the official student voice and act as the corporate governing body of ASI. Any student who wishes to run for candidacy and did not file or submit a candidate packet prior to the filing deadline can still run by filing as a write-in candidate. Write-in candidates’ names will not appear on the ballot and will need to be written in. ASI elections use instant run-off voting, where students rank candidates from first to last preference. The process eliminates the candidate with the fewest votes, redistributing their votes based on the next preference until a candidate secures more than half of the vote.

Candidates can be viewed on the ASI website.
