About the Election
The Student Body Congress elections take place every semester. Congress is made up of Student Representatives elected by their constituents to set IUSG policy and advocate for their constituents' needs. 31 seats in Congress represent residential-based constituencies, and 31 seats represent academic-based constituencies.
The Fall 2022 General Election took place on September 20th-21st, 2022. All 31 residential seats in Congress were up for election for one-year terms. In addition, to implement the new yearly election schedule recently approved by the student body, all 31 academic seats in Congress were up for election for six-month terms. In the future, the academic seats will now be elected every spring semester for one-year terms.
