OFFICIAL Results for Referendum Item 1
On February 13, 2020 the ASG Senate passed Senate Bill No. 7, which allowed the question, “Would you be in favor of a constitutional amendment to create a Membership Development Coordinator within ASG?” to be included as a question on the 2020-2021 General Election Ballot as “Referendum Item 1.”
All currently enrolled undergraduate students were eligible to vote on this question.
The referendum item appeared on the ballot as follows:
Would you be in favor of a constitutional amendment to create a Membership Development Coordinator within ASG?
The voting options that were available for this question appear below, as well as an explanation for what each voting option meant:
Yes – I am in favor of a constitutional amendment to create a Membership Development Coordinator within ASG. By selecting “yes” on this question, a voter is indicating a positive or affirming vote that counts as a vote cast and does factor into total votes cast.
No – I am not in favor of a constitutional amendment to create a Membership Development Coordinator within ASG. By selecting “no” on this question, a voter is indicating a negative or dissenting opinion and does count towards total votes cast.
Prefer Not to Respond – By selecting “Prefer Not to Respond” a voter is indicating they prefer to abstain from voting on the question. Selecting “Prefer Not to Respond” does count as a vote cast, and does factor in total votes cast.
Skip Question – By selecting “Skip Question,” a voter is choosing to skip the question and this will not count as a vote cast. Selecting “Skip Question” will take voter to the next ballot item.
Here are the results for Referendum Item 1:
|Prefer Not to Respond||438|
To calculate a majority threshold, ASGJ added the total votes cast for “yes,” “no,” and “prefer not to respond,” and divided this number in half and added one, as the majority threshold is 50% of the vote +1. The majority threshold needed to pass Referendum Item 1 was 2,167.5. The voting option that reached this majority threshold was “yes.” ASGJ has certified the 2020-2021 General Election Results, confirming that Referendum Item 1 passes.
