Meet the Candidates

Any UW-Madison student who is enrolled at the time of the ASM elections is able to vote. Unlike the local spring elections for Madison and Dane County positions, there are no registration, citizenship, or residency requirements for the ASM student elections. All UW-Madison students are eligible to vote.

Student Council is comprised of 33 elected representatives and is chiefly responsible for exercising the legislative powers and duties of shared governance as stipulated by Wisconsin State Statute 36.09(5). Student Council Representatives serve their constituents through student advocacy and by reviewing and recommending changes to campus policy pertaining to student life, services, and interests. Elected representatives will serve from April 24, 2022 – April 23, 2023. Students vote for Student Council representatives based on their college/school status. For example, students in the College of Engineering vote for students within that college.

The Student Services Finance Committee (SSFC) is made up of UW students whose task is to make recommendations to ASM Student Council on the allocation of over $50 million in segregated fees. SSFC provides substantial (typically $20,000 and upward) funding to organizations that provide a non-academic but educational service to the UW-Madison student body. Elected SSFC representatives will serve a 2-year term from April 24, 2022 – April 23, 2024. Every student is eligible to vote for Student Services Finance Committee (SSFC) Seats.
