Two large coalitions win big in IUSG Congressional Elections



news-filler

The IU Student Government Election Commission released the preliminary list of the 57 candidates who will be seated in the 2020-21 IUSG Congress. The elections were held last week. 

Two coalitions, ReviveIU and ReImagineIU, endorsed a large set of candidates, with ReviveIU endorsing more than 50 candidates and ReImagineIU supporting more than 30. 

ReviveIU-endorsed candidates won 23 of the seats, including quite a few of the residential seats. Those 23 seats make up just less than half of the total candidates the coalition endorsed for the election.

ReImagineIU’s candidates had a very strong showing, specifically in seats open for those living off campus. Of its endorsed candidates, 17won their elections, which is more than half of the candidates it endorsed. 

Together, the two coalitions picks make up all but 10 of the candidates who were seated in this year’s IUSG Congress. 

IUSG announced on social media that voter participation quadrupled for this year's congressional election.

The election commission sent the results to the IUSG Supreme Court and it approved the election on Sunday. The Supreme Court also said there are no outstanding appeals before it or the election commission in the statement.
