1. You Must Be A Currently Enrolled CPP Student
This probably comes as no surprise, but being an enrolled CPP student is a must if you plan on voting! Cue the, “she doesn’t even go here” scene from Mean Girls.

2. You Can Only Vote Once

3. Voter Information Guide
The Voter Information Guide will be available on the ASI website and emailed to every student. Look out for the guide before the start of campaigning!

4. Vote For Those In Your College
You can only vote for the senators who are running in your respective college. As for senators of each council, go wild, you can vote for each of them.

5. Restrictions For Undeclared Students
If you haven’t declared a major yet, you’ll have to hold off on voting for candidates running in an academic college. But don’t worry, once you’re a declared student, the rule above applies!

6. Yay For Online Voting
Paper-ballot voting is no longer on this campus. Instead, a unique link will be sent to your university email address, leading to myBAR where a headshot of each candidate and a short bio will be displayed.

7. No Write-In Candidates

8. Majority Vote Rules
