Voting for the 2019-2020 General Election took place from March 4 through March 6. Since that time, the ASGJ has worked quickly to address all election complaints filed, review all candidates’ expenditure reports, and verify final vote totals and results. The following results have been reviewed and approved by a quorum of the ASGJ. 

According to the 2019-2020 General Election packet, candidates must receive a majority of all votes cast for that office. The majority threshold is fifty percent of all votes counted plus one. The final vote total is calculated by taking the number of votes cast, including votes for all candidates and the “Prefer Not to Respond” option, and subtracting any vote deduction penalties that may have been sanctioned as a part of a campaign violation. There were no vote deduction penalties in the 2019-2020 General Election, so the majority threshold will be fifty percent of all votes cast plus one. As a reminder, President and Vice-President candidates ran together as one voting option. Treasurer and Secretary candidates were each separate voting options. 


For the office of SECRETARY, there were 5,771 votes cast. The majority threshold needed to win the election for this office is 2,733. 

There were 166 votes cast for the “Prefer not to respond” option. 

There were 307 votes cast for the “Skip Question” option, which was not calculated into the vote total to determine a majority threshold. 

Leyla Coronel received 1,025 votes.  

John Hedgecock received 2,046 votes.   

Jack Skidmore received 2,227 votes. 

As no candidate reached the majority threshold needed to win the election, a run-off election will be held to elect the next ASG Secretary. The ASG Code says, “The two (2) candidates receiving the most votes in the general election shall be the candidates in the first (1st) run-off election.” Because they received the most votes in this election for the office of secretary, Jack Skidmore and John Hedgecock will advance to a run-off election. 


For the office of TREASURER, there were ­­­­5,772 votes cast. The majority threshold needed to win the election for this office is 2,719 votes. 

There were 168 ballots cast for the “prefer not to respond” option. 

There were 336 votes cast for the “Skip Question” option. 

Kirsten James received 2,106 votes.  

Kevin Smith Jr. received 1,100 votes. 

Arianna Kiaei received 2,062 votes. 

As no candidate reached the majority threshold needed to win the election, a run-off election will be held to elect the next ASG Treasurer.  

Due to an incomplete expenditure report, treasurer candidate Arianna Kiaei was disqualified from the 2019-2020 General Election, in accordance with the rules listed on the 2019-2020 General Election Expenditure Report Form. She will not move forward to the run-off election. 

Therefore, Kevin Smith Jr. and Kirsten James will advance to a run-off election for the office of treasurer. 


For the offices of PRESIDENT AND VICE-PRESIDENT, there were 5,773 votes cast. The majority threshold needed to win the election for this office is 2,799.5 

There were 78 votes cast for the “Prefer not to respond” option. 

There were 176 votes cast for the “Skip Question” option 

Jared Pinkerton and Sadie Bryant received 2,500 votes. 

Mariam Siddiqui and Haley Goodebiddle received 893 votes.  

Maria Calderon and Shay Longmate received 2,126 

As no candidate reached the majority threshold needed to win the election, a run-off election will be held to elect the next ASG President and Vice President. Because they received the most votes in this election for the office of president and vice president, Maria Calderon and Shay Longmate and Jared Pinkerton and Sadie Bryant will advance to a run-off election. 


The ASGJ has created and approved an addendum to the 2019-2020 General Election packet.
