In an effort to smooth the transition between student government administrations, the Wesleyan Council on Student Affairs (WCSA) amended the portion of their constitution that controls elections.
Senators unanimously passed resolution 15F07 this Monday, Oct. 19, to effect the change.
Before the resolution, chapter 5, article 44 of the WCSA constitution stated that elections should be held over three separate dates. The elections of the WCSA president and vice president, executive officers and general senators were set for the first, second and third Fridays in November, respectively.
Now, executive officers will be voted into office on the first Friday in November. General senators will elected on the second Friday in November.
The change allows WCSA to begin the new year with a fresh senate, smoothing the transition time for student representatives.
After the senators broke into brief committee meetings, another short senate came to a close.
