The Student Government Association (SGA) Election Commission exists to supervise and regulate the SGA elections in accordance with the SGA Constitution. There is a University-Wide Election Commission, made up of the Election Commission Chairs from each campus, that oversees the presidential election. The Campus Election Commission oversees the elections specific to each campus.

The current SGA Communications Director of each of the Perimeter campuses serves as an election commission chair for their respective campus (unless they are planning to run for re-election). For the Atlanta campus, interviews are held to select the Election Chair and Vice Chairs for Logistics and Marketing. Election commission officials for Spring 2018 are listed below. To contact any of the Election Commission personnel, send an email to [email protected].
