2017 Fall Elections


Every semester, the Austin Peay student body elects numerous representatives to be their voice in student government. Freshman/ Graduate Senator elections are held in the Fall, while all other elections including Executive Council are held in the Spring. As the Head of Internal Affairs, I am in-charge of all student body elections. Several steps have been taken to ensure the most participation in SGA elections. If you have any questions about the elections process, please review the following FAQs or email me.

You can vote for SGA representatives by going to www.apsu.edu, and following the “SGA Elections” link at the bottom of the page.

 The Student Government Association conducts the SGA elections and works in conjunction with the SGA Constitution, By-Laws and Standing Rules.  Elections and referenda of SGA conform to the Electoral Act, provided these procedures do not conflict with the SGA Constitution, By-Laws and/or Standing Rules. 

You may access these documents under this section. 

 Through the usage of Peaylink, all votes are counted electronically and then announced at Ratification on the first day immediately following elections.

 The Internal Affairs Committee or the Student Tribunal may order a recount within twenty-four hours of certification. If a run-off election is necessary, it will be held within 10 days and no write-in votes are allowed.
