Election Results

Georgia State University held a general election for the 2018-2019 executive and legislative candidates of the Student Government Association on Monday, March 26 – Wednesday, March 28, 2018. The results, with 984 votes cast on the Atlanta campus and 491 on the Perimeter campuses, are available by viewing our SGA Elections Announcement.
