Good Morning,

It’s time to cast your vote for Ohio University’s student government.

Both Student Senate and Graduate Student Senate elections start this morning at 8 a.m., and polls will stay open until Tuesday at 7 p.m. Voting takes place online, but there will be a ballot station in Baker Center where students can vote in person.

The Student Senate race has three tickets — Green Light, Voice and Fight — while the GSS race is largely uncontested.

Typically, between 2,000 and 2,500 students cast votes in the Student Senate race. Last year, 128 people voted for GSS representatives, which is “a really small percentage” of the graduate student population, GSS presidential candidate Maria Modayil told The Post.
