Frequently Asked Questions

How can I run?

Information for ASI Elections will generally appear online in January. The ASI Board of Directors serves as the official voice of the CSUSM student body. To assure that you're prepared for this committment, we strongly suggest that you review the ASI Elections website, specifically the ASI Bylaws. The ASI Bylaws provide in-depth information about each position on the ASI Board of Directors. Next, we suggest reviewing the ASI Elections Guidelines to learn more about the electoral process.

Once you've reviewed the website and documents listed above, we invite you attend an ASI Elections Information Session. These sessions are presented by the ASI Elections Committee and are designed to provide a space to learn the next steps in the ASI Elections process and ask any questions you may have.
