Class Council Election Procedures

Sequence of Events

 

Step 1 - Campaigning and Speeches

  1. Campaigning: Students who have met requirements will be notified by e-mail. They will then be allowed to hang posters/flyers 7 days prior to speeches, but not 2 days after the initial hanging date.

  2. Speeches: All President and Vice President candidates will be giving a speech that is 1-2 minutes long during a designated period of time (Lunch, rally, etc...). Speeches must be pre-approved by ASB by the specified date prior to giving the speech. If a candidate does not stick to the pre-approved speech or does not get their speech approved, he/she may have their speech cut short or forfeit their speech time. Please provide a copy for the ASB advisor.

  3. Casting Your Vote:  All students will receive an e-mail via School Loop to cast their votes.  The online voting form will be sent to the corresponding classes.  For example, current 11th grade students will only be voting for next year’s Senior Class Council. Votes cast for a non-corresponding class officer will be removed. The School Loop e-mail will be sent out at 12:30 p.m after the speeches. If students can not access School Loop, a link will be posted on the ASB homepage.

 

Step 2 - Voting

  1. Lunch Voting: There will be 3 voting booths during the lunch period.

  2. Polls Close: The polls will be closed at 3 p.m. on the specified date.

  3. Votes Printed: At 3:00 p.m., ASB Advisor and an Administrator will print the voting summary and lock them up in the school safe.

 

Step 3 - Ballot Count

  1. Counting Votes: Ballots close at 3 p.m. on the specified date. All votes will be checked for duplicates and verified that all votes were cast by Sage Creek High School students and grade levels matched the corresponding Class Council.  The following will participate in the vote counting: ASB Advisor, an Administrator, an ASB Executive Board Member and ASB Financial Tech.

    • In case of a tie, there will be a re-vote for 2 days between the tied candidates to break the tie.  All the previous voting guidelines will be in place.  

    • If any office is left vacant, ASB may appoint an officer on a majority vote.

  1. Officers Announced: The winning candidates will be announced at the end of period 3 on the specified date over the School PA.
