ASI election results in runoff

A runoff election starting today is being held to determine the winners for all Associated Students, Inc. executive positions for the 2016-17 academic year.

The ASI Election Board announced the results March 24 in the ASI Senate chamber before a crowd of students and faculty.

However, since none of the candidates for each of the three offices received a majority vote, the executive positions for next year’s ASI treasurer, vice president and president will be determined in an online runoff election April 4-6.

Below is a list of those in the runoff, with the percentage of votes they received.

Treasurer:

  • Gio Smith (49.5)
  • Mariam Balogun (29.6)

Vice President:

  • Logan Vournas (38.5)
  • Novy Bowman (19.4)

President:

  • Marvin Flores (33)
  • Robert Espinoza (15)

Oscar Acevedo originally came in second place in the presidential election, but was disqualified.

Students can vote in the runoff elections by clicking on the link sent to their email registered with CSULB. The results will be announced Thursday in the ASI Senate chamber in the University Student Union.

      We don’t keep secrets, we try to air them out. We are reporting the numbers made available to us by the student government, ASI. We aren’t the ones who count the vote. That said, we will try to find out those numbers. Elections are still ongoing.
