Ballots open April 28 and 29 to elect new Associated Students Incorporated (ASI) leaders for the 2014-2015 academic year.
Students can cast votes in the Warrior Activities Center during the two-day span from 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m.
A Warrior ID is required to participate.
Nominees for ASI president include Amber Deming and incumbent Mariam Salameh.
Deming, Signal Staff Writer, is a first-time candidate for president served on the ASI Corporate Staff as the Governmental Affairs Administrator for one year.
“My number one goal is to bring a sense of unity to our campus,” Deming (junior, Economics) said.
“It’s time to feel involved and feel important. That starts with ASI being upfront and acting less like a business and more like a service to students.”
Strengthening support for student organizations is one of Deming’s goals if elected into office.
“Students who participate in student organizations are the ones who are most active on campus,” Deming said.
“They are the ones who contribute and support student life. They deserve some support in return. I’m not just talking about Greeks.
Student-run groups like Penumbra, honor societies, Warrior Rewind, etc. are all huge contributors. If we want to strengthen student life on campus, we need to support those who are contributing and who can get more students involved.”
Deming hopes to address areas of concern such as priority registration for athletes, Greek Housing and an earlier spring break. She believes in this platform because they are issues important to the student body.
“These are student questions, and they deserve answers,” Deming said.
“ASI has a $1.1 million budget. That’s a lot of money. Ask yourself: Is my life significantly better because of ASI? If not, why should you pay for it? It’s time to redefine student life.”
To learn more about the candidates’ goals for the campus, be sure to attend the ASI Board of Director Election Debate in Main Dining April 16, 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

The unofficial results of the election will be posted by April 30. The official winners will be announced May 6.
