The Senate on Tuesday night declined to vote on a petition to fund The Stanford Daily’s printing costs for the 2019-20 academic year.
Justice Tention ’18 and Vicki Niu ’18 were elected as the 2017-2018 ASSU Executives with 1,374 votes. Voter turnout rates for undergraduate and graduate students were 55.49 percent and 29.80 percent, respectively.
Although the student body will vote on a multitude of candidates and Annual Grants in the upcoming ASSU elections, absent from the ballot this year are student-submitted referenda. This election season, there were three student-submitted referenda up for petitioning; however, none of them acquired enough signatures to move forward on the ballot despite strong backing from various student groups.
Though most students know that the bulk of Senate funds go to student groups, fewer are familiar with the funding machinery behind the programming — and the challenges that come with stretching the dollar across the over 700 registered student organizations.
John-Lancaster Finley ’16 and Brandon Hill ’16 will be the new ASSU President and Vice-President, respectively, the ASSU elections commission announced Saturday afternoon at CoHo.
