ASULV urges students to vote

The Associated Students of University of La Verne, the student government at the University, is holding elections for the various positions in the organization next week.

Voting opens at 8 a.m. Monday and closes at 2 p.m. Wednesday. Students will be able to vote on ASULV’s campus labs page and a link will also be provided on their Instagram

Voters will automatically be entered in a raffle, where three people will win an Apple iPad, Keurig coffee machine and a Lululemon belt bag. 

ASULV advocates for students’ interests and needs on campus by creating quality experiences, programs, and services. 

Their goal is to advocate for students, promote and enrich student academic, cultural, social, and physical welfare along with enhancing education while supporting clubs and organizations at the University. They also want students to be able to have a voice in campus governance. 

Cristina Navarrete, a junior business administration major and ASULV’s marketing vice president said it’s important for students to vote because whoever is elected will be their future representatives and it will directly affect them. 

“Depending on what their goals are, if they’re wildly different than it can impact students in the following year, it can impact the different types of changes that they can see,”  Navarrete said. “It’s important that they voice their own opinion and just exercise the right to vote in general.”

An additional goal ASULV had this year was to gain publicity and better distinguish themselves on campus. They hope creating incentives will help get students’ attention.

“I think this is a big opportunity for students to learn about elections and about ASULV as a whole,” Navarrete. “We found that this raffle is a great way to entice people to learn about ASULV as well as to partake and vote for elections.”
