Record Breaking News from Student Government!

This is so AWESOME! Student Government recently held their elections from March 18-March 24 for the 2013-2014 school year. We put together an elaborate display with lights included so that we could grab and capture the students attention so that they would ask what we were doing and this display worked very well for us as our intention was to let the students know about us and what we do and to also raise our voter turnout. This was a very successful election for our group! According to the American Student Government Association the national averageĀ for voter turnoutĀ among all types and sizes of institutions is 4%, and for Community and Technical Colleges the average is under 2%. We had a total of 963 voters which represents 6.07% of eligible voters. In previous years we’ve had 1.2%, 4% and other results, but this year was FABULOUS! This is the first time that we’ve had this great of a voter turn out for our elections and our goal for next year is to aim even higher. On behalf of Student Government we would also like to Thank all of the administration that came out and volunteered at the polling tables and for showing us support, we really appreciate it!
