The Elections Board would like to issue a statement to the student body that from this point forward all ongoing cases will not be ruled upon until after voting closes on March 7 at 7 p.m.

This is to enforce the commitment of due process and conducting a fair and transparent election for every candidate and student. All pending and reported violations are being reviewed and they will be considered, even after the announcement of the unofficial results.

This includes but is not limited to any violations found in regards to sanctions being broken.

We would like to emphasize that the results released, hopefully on the evening of March 7, will be unofficial and will be not be considered officially certified until all violations have been ruled upon.

If you have any questions, please be sure to reach out to the Elections Board via sgaelections@sa.ua.edu.

The Elections Board has released rulings on various campaign actions for the Spring 2017 elections. Furthermore, the Elections Board has released a summons for those with information on "The Machine," as well as clarifications regarding social media use and digital signage.
