Welcome to the 2023 Student Government Association Elections Portal, produced by The Avion.

With the upcoming elections for the next SGA President, Vice President, Treasurer, Student Senate, and Student Treasury Board, The Avion has made a way for all students to make an informed decision on selecting the next representatives for the student body.

For this website, The Avion captured responses to interview questions from candidates via an online form, administered from March 6 to March 14, 2023. Each candidate was asked the same questions as other candidates running for the same respective position.

The Avion has published these interview question responses on this website, and each candidate's profile on this website appear in the same order that they will appear on the official election ballot. Candidates whose profiles do not appear on this website or in the Elections Special Edition Magazine opted not to have their profiles published. This website is published alongside a Special Edition Magazine and Special Episode Broadcast, also produced by The Avion.

Please navigate through this portal, being sure to visit each ticket/candidate's page, which houses their basic biography and their interview question responses.

For questions or concerns regarding this website or any SGA Elections marketing or information products, please contact The Avion at dbavion@erau.edu.
