Student Union elections will be held Sunday online at the new Union website, Most Senate positions and members of the new Brandeis Sustainability Fund will be up for a vote.

No candidates have registered to become Senator for the Mods, Ridgewood or the Village, while candidates for Transitional Year Program senator, Castle and Charles River senators and the representative to the University Curriculum Committee are running unopposed. First-year positions, including Massell and North quad senators, have many candidates.

“We focused mostly on first-years,” Student Union Secretary Herbie Rosen ’12, said. “We held a ‘Meet the Union,’ earlier this month, Daniel [Acheampong, Union president] was door-knocking; we also asked [community development coordinators] to announce the elections.”

Rosen also noted that some candidates have not officially filed by press time but have contacted him and may declare and be on the Sunday ballot.
