Results for the recent Undergraduate Student Government (USG) elections were held from students for over two weeks due to an ongoing case concerning violations filed by president-elect Irma Valverde against her opponent Andrew Stern.

While keeping results under wraps for so long after polls closed was unprecedented, the judiciary’s involvement in the USG presidential race was not. A recent Daily Campus article shows USG’s judiciary made rulings based on violations in every presidential election since 2011, except in 2015 when Rachel Conboy ran unopposed.
