Council Special Interest


The mission of the Election Commission shall be the fair and proper administration of all elections of the Government. The Election Commission is tasked with planning, mediating, and executing the Student Government elections at Iowa State. Being a member of the commission develops many valuable skills to be applied outside of the classroom setting. Those skills can include marketable event management, strategic planning, delegation, decision making, teamwork, and many more as we work to search for the most qualified individuals to be lead the student body at Iowa State University.
