The time has come to fulfill our democratic duty of voting! From 8 a.m., on April 29, 2024 to May 3, 2024, at 3 p.m., at the University of California, Riverside (UCR), students will have the opportunity to vote for their favored candidates in the Associated Students of UCR (ASUCR) elections. For your convenience, here is a guide to go about voting for your representatives for the 2024 – 2025 school year.

How can people vote:

This year, voting will be entirely online. Ballots will be emailed to students at the start of election week, and they can vote for candidates from there. After they finish voting, students will receive a unique code, which they can bring to one of many polling sites to pick up an incentive. If any technical issues arise, such as not receiving a ballot or being unable to submit a ballot, students can go to one of the polling sites where someone from the elections team will help them with their issue. Electronic devices will also be available at polling sites if students are unable to vote by their own means. 


Candidate information:

To find out more information about the candidates, students can access the 2024 – 2025 ASUCR Candidates page on the ASUCR website or click the drop-down icon next to each candidate’s name on the ballot.

Students will be able to vote for President, Vice President and Director positions, as well as senators from their own college. Students also have the ability to abstain from voting from any of the listed candidates, if they are not fully confident in that candidate’s ability to perform in that position. This also applies if a candidate is running unopposed.



Polling locations will offer various incentives each day. Tote-bags will be distributed at the Bell Tower on Tuesday at 3 p.m. and Wednesday at 11 a.m., t-shirts will be distributed at the Bell Tower on Tuesday at 11 a.m. and Wednesday at 3 p.m. and 5 p.m., stickers and button pins and much more will be available at any polling site from elections committee members. For further information on the various incentives that are released, check out @asucr_elections on Instagram.
