The Nominations and Election Committee is holding special elections for a new Undergraduate Assembly representative.

The UA is currently short by one College representative, and there is no runner-up from the original elections cycle to take the open place.

Earlier this year, one UA College representative stepped down, and one was removed from the body for failing to attend enough meetings. After UA representative and College sophomore Alid Castano stepped down earlier in the year, the next highest vote getter, College sophomore Taha Tariq — who was also the only College student to run for the UA and not be elected — replaced Castano.

Because Tariq already replaced Castano, the UA must hold a special election to fill the spot of removed representative and College sophomore Kendall Finlay.

To publicize the elections, the NEC sent out emails to each undergraduate class. The monetary campaigning period will begin on Nov. 17.
