When elections occur for both Supreme Court and Central Committee, ASC looks for students who are passionate about George Fox. We are looking for people who are passionate about Christ. Becoming a leader with the ASC requires passion and dedication.
Applications for Supreme Court will be available early on in the fall semester. Instructions and deadlines are within the applications. They will be available at the ASC Offices. Once applications are turned in there will be an election between the qualified candidates.
- Petitions for all ASC Central Committee offices shall be available no later than the first (1st) week of March.
- The Central Committee general election shall be held no later than the Wednesday before spring break.
- ASC Central Committee elections will be held by secret ballot, and the numbers of any and all candidates will be withheld from everybody who is not serving on the Elections Committee.
- No campaigning may be done earlier than two weeks before the election. The Associate Dean of Student Leadership must approve the candidate before he or she becomes eligible to campaign.
- Proper campaigning guidelines, election procedures, and the names of opposing candidates will be made available to all candidates. It is the responsibility of the candidate to acquire this information from the Elections Committee.
- The counting of ballots for all ASC Central Committee offices is the responsibility of the Elections Committee. Results will be made available to candidates immediately upon the completion of the count.
- The candidate receiving a majority of the votes cast for such candidate’s office will be declared elected and offered the position. If the elected declines, the next highest candidate based on election numbers is then offered the position.
- A write-in candidate, if eligible according to Article III, Section 1 and 3 of the By-Laws, may be elected by a simple majority of the votes cast for that office.
