SGA announces rebrand Image (copy)

UCF Student Government Senate election winners were announced Wednesday night in the atrium of the Student Union.  The 52rd senate session will hold their first meeting Thursday in the Key West Ballroom at 7:00pm.

The Student Union atrium garnered attention Wednesday night as students waited to hear the results of the latest Student Government Senate elections.

Polls closed at 5:00 p.m. on Wednesday evening with results announced around 8:00 p.m. that night.

Supervisor of Elections Austin Wilson announced the winners of each college to a large crowd of hopefuls. Wilson had a lot of responsibility and not a lot of time as he only served as supervisor for less than two weeks. This is following the resignation of former Supervisor of Elections Julian Mayorga.

Only 1,960 students voted in this election, a comparable drop to the 4,018 students who voted in the 2018 Senate elections, according to Student Government.
