Voting in an ASUCD election requires a computer with access to the Internet, and a valid UC Davis Kerberos ID. Voting is only open to undergraduate students. You will be asked to provide your Kerberos ID, and then you may vote on presidential, senatorial, and ballot measures. Once you submit each ballot, it is final and cannot be changed or viewed again. The exact number of items which require voting varies depending on the election. You do not have to vote for anything for which you have no decision.
Any election requires a certain amount of information to be provided to the voter, such as the full text of any ballot measure, as well as information regarding who is running for which office, and their mission statements. You can find information about the election here. Please be aware that the election is broken into three components: a Presidential race, a Senatorial race, and any number of ballot measures. An election might not contain all these components together.
Choice voting is a method of voting which yields a greater representation for a voter's preferences than a simple one half or two thirds majority voting. On the ballot page, voters are asked to rank as many or as few candidates as they wish in ascending order. The advantage is that you can vote for the candidate you truly wish for without your vote being wasted if they're an unpopular candidate. Specifying more than one preference does not hurt your first preference.
