Expanding Senatorial Elections
By Senator Mihir Pandya for All Campus
I authored a constitutional amendment passed by the ASUCSD Senate, approved as the Constitutional Update Act (Amendments to the Constitution), which has been ratified by the various college councils, to elect the International Senator position in addition to the Out-of-State Senator position. Originally, these positions were appointed months after the election cycle would complete. Now, undergraudate students will have the opportunity to vote for these senatorial positions during regular elections for ASUCSD positions.
The primary goal of this project or legislation was to expand democracy within the ASUCSD, giving undergraduate students more direct participation in their student government.
