Electing Club Officers

Here are a few suggestions on how to hold elections for your club; however, each club can decide how elections will work best.

At the meeting prior to holding elections: 

  • Define the officers’ roles and responsibilities and what strengths a student needs to excel in each role.
  • Ask if any students are interested in running for an officer position or if they would like to nominate a peer.
  • Encourage each student running to prepare a statement to present at the next meeting about why he or she would be the best choice for that officer role.

To hold elections: 

  • Review each officer role again for the entire club.
  • Have candidates speak to the club about why they want to be an officer.
  • Have students write down on a piece of paper their votes for each position.
  • Tally the votes and announce the winner.
