Cal State Long Beach students submitted their final ballots for Associated Students, Inc. executive offices in a run-off election right before spring break and voted in the rest of the “Moving Forward Together” slate.

Joe Nino, vice president-elect, and Jonathan Wanless, treasurer-elect will join Daniel Gomez, ASI president-elect, in June to lead the student government at CSULB.
