Cards react to unopposed SGA elections
By Mariah Powers–
With SGA elections currently taking place, The Cardinal took to the sidewalks to grab students’ opinions on the unopposed election.
“I really do not have thoughts about the SGA student elections. I do not know if there is not enough student reach or if we are as students are not informed enough, but I would like to know more in the future,” -Roxanne Smith, junior communications major.
“I think that it is not right that a debate was not held. It is in their constitution. I feel strongly about the SGA elections and I do not think that it was fair this year,” -Anonymous.
“I did vote. I have a close friend that is running in this years election. I think that compared to the traditional SGA elections, this year may be less stressful for the students and those involved in the election. I wish the candidates the best of luck in this years SGA elections!” -Emily Brazell, sophomore biology major.
“I did not vote this year because I did not know any of the candidates running this year so I was uneducated on to who to vote for and they stood for. However, I think that the elections should not be unopposed because it is only good for one nominee and not the majority,” -Alicia Dawson, junior social work major.
“I have no clue about the SGA elections, what is it?” -Anonymous.
