Next Thursday, Hoyas will go to the polls (electronically) to decided between seven tickets that are running for the GUSA Executive. For the last few days, Red Square and social media has been bombarded with campaign ads and videos. On Sunday, a packed Leavey Program Room watched the seven presidential candidates spar with each other, and on Wednesday evening, the seven vice presidential candidates will debate on the same stage.
Our straw poll last year incorrectly predicted that Jed Feiman and Henry Sims would win, so take the results, when we publish them later this week, with a grain of salt. The number of candidates means that the instant-runoff voting system that will be employed will play an important role in deciding who will be the next GUSA President and Vice President. The number of people who list a particular candidate fourth in their preferences could easily play a role next week.
All that being said, vote in our straw poll!
