Today, February 22nd, was the first day of voting for SGA’s next student body president. Campaign tents were set up all over campus encouraging students to vote. Most tents had everyone’s favorite incentive: free food! The Kilbride and Lochrane campaign offered voters pizza and Wackadoo’s. The Daniel and Kevin campaign had pizza, El Corral, Tenders and iKiwi. Students voting for either candidate seemed to be enjoying the sunny weather and complimentary snacks.
Other than the voting tents, the UCF campus was turned yellow with both parties campaign t-shirts. Some students hate being harassed for votes, but get used to it because there’s still voting days ahead of us! Representatives from student government and both parties reported an excellent voter turnout this year. It was good to see students going out and getting involved. Keep voting over the next couple of days, every vote counts UCF!
