About the ASM Student Elections
Every student at the University of Wisconsin-Madison is eligible to vote for Student Council Representatives for their school or college as well as members of the Student Services Finance Committee (SSFC). Students interested in running for a position can contact the Chair of the Student Election Commission for information on candidacy declaration forms.


Student Election Commission
The Student Election Commission (SEC) is a subcommittee of the Student Judiciary that plans and executes the election. It is comprised of a Chair and Vice-Chair from the Student Judiciary and a number of hired commissioners who work on many different aspects of the election ranging from design & advertising to dorm outreach. The SEC welcomes any student interested in improving student voter turnout! Contact the SEC Chair: elections@asm.wisc.edu


Fall Elections
In the fall, elections occur when there are vacancies on Student Council or the Student Services Finance Committee (SSFC) and when there is a referendum on the ballot. Prior to 2017, there were also freshman seats on Student Council which were elected during the fall semester.

All thirty-three (33) council representatives are elected in the Spring: Professional (2), Graduate (7), Letters and Science (12), Human Ecology (1), Education (1), Business (2), Agricultural and Life Sciences (2), Engineering (3), Nursing and Pharmacy (1), and Special (2).
