Blastoff, Homecoming and Flashfest: most students have at least one great memory from these Kent State traditions. Whether it was DaBaby, Chloe x Halle or Do It For The Culture, USG planned and implemented them all.
This is the first year USG elections have been completely conducted online. Instead of gathering signatures in public spaces like the Student Center or the library, candidates are gathering their 202 signatures over Google Docs.
“We’re extending the process until Friday,” said Ethan Lower, the USG director of governmental affairs. “We’re seeking to make sure we get as many applicants as possible.”
The extension comes after a lack of completed petitions at the time of the original deadline last week.
“We have a great group of students,” said Lower.
USG released the Candidate list Monday, ahead of Tuesday’s scheduled Meet-and-Greet event. The candidates may start campaigning; however, the candidate list will not be finalized until Friday, February 26.
