Spring 2021 Student Government Elections and Absentee Ballot Information

To All Students at the University of Florida:

My name is Hayley Price and I serve as the Supervisor of Elections for UF Student Government. I look forward to ensuring that all students are able to participate in the Spring Student Government Elections on February 23rd and February 24th. Similar to the process in place across the country, I urge each of you to fulfill your civic duty and either come to one of our various on campus polling locations on either day of elections or submit an absentee ballot.

If you are not able to make it to a polling location, I urge you to submit an absentee ballot request prior to the deadline of 5 PM on February 10th, 2021.
You can request an absentee ballot by either filling out the online request form found on the SG website at http://sg.ufl.edu/Elections or you can print out a form. The printed form can be mailed to 3000 J. Wayne Reitz Union, PO Box 118505, Gainesville, FL 32611 or faxed to the SG office at (352) 392-8072.
If you request an absentee ballot you will receive a stamped, self-addressed envelope and instructions on the use of an absentee ballot in the mail.
Absentee ballots are to be returned to the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court by mail before 8:30 PM on February 24th, 2021.
Let me know if you have any questions and Go Gators!
