The Student Elections Commission (SEC) is the body of the Judicial Branch of BU Student Government that oversees and runs the Elections for the Executive Board and At-Large Senators. The SEC is composed of three Co-Chairs and seven Commissioners, who will serve a two-semester term starting on Fall 2021 and ending in Spring 2022.

The SEC requires a team that is diverse in terms of skills and interests, as they will be in charge of policies and event planning. Undergraduate students who feel comfortable with logistics, budgeting, marketing, policy creation, and/or crisis management are encouraged to apply. The SEC will be expected to revise and determine election policies and understand their implications on a fair election. It is important to note that experience in these areas can be helpful, but it is not necessary to succeed in this role.

The SEC will meet at least once every two weeks in the Fall semester. These meetings can last from one to two hours depending on the workload for each meeting. In the Spring Semester, the SEC will meet at least once per week, since all election events, including campaigning and voting periods, take place in the Spring.

This application is due on September 7th, 2021. A confirmation email will be sent once the application has been received, outlining next steps and any relevant information. The Chief Justice and Deputy Chief Justice will interview all applicants during the first weeks of the Fall 2021 semester. Interviews may be conducted in-person or virtually. Any questions or concerns can be directed to sgjud@bu.edu.
