Public Statement from SGA Elections Board

Issued November 14, 2017 in compliance with the order of the Chief Justice of the Student Government Association received on November 13, 2017

The SGA Elections Board has been and will remain committed to fairness and transparency in elections at the University of Alabama; and moving forward, we will take what we have learned from the Homecoming Elections and ensure that we follow the elections manual and guidelines to ensure that fairness. Furthermore, we will be releasing all documents from the Homecoming Elections involving complaints, vote totals and financial disclosure forms, to the University today. We regret that, because of our own oversight, we did not follow the timelines for disclosure within Article IV, Section 6, Part C and Article, 1, Sections 8 and 10; and we take full responsibility for these mistakes. However, this committee has always and will always work, in good faith, for the betterment of the electoral system at the University of Alabama.
