Results from the Associated Students Student Senate elections, which wrapped up on Nov. 1, are in. The AS Student Senate welcomed 16 students into their new positions.
The AS Student Senate is responsible for voting on a wide variety of issues. In the past year, they covered topics ranging from Title IX regulation to AS wage policies, according to the meeting minutes from 2018-2019.
The student senate represents eight colleges on campus and has four at-large representatives to stand in for undeclared students. Four colleges need a second senator, as not enough students ran to fill both positions for those colleges, AS Elections Coordinator Ina LaGrandeur said.
Colleges without a second senator are the College of Fine and Performing Arts, Huxley College of the Environment, Woodring College of Education and Graduate School.
Voting was open to Western students from Oct. 28 until Nov. 1 at 4 p.m.
