2021 Senate Election - Voting Open
May 03, 2021

Dear Colleagues:

Voting is open for the annual election of a Divisional Vice Chair/Chair Designate, Divisional Representatives to the systemwide Assembly of the Academic Senate, and Committee on Committees members. These elected positions play a key role on campus and systemwide. The Senate Chair leads the Senate Council and Representative Assembly, and with the Divisional Representatives, ensures a faculty voice in campus and systemwide decisions. The Committee on Committees shapes our campus voice by appointing Senate members to Senate committees and nominating members for a wide array of search, review and other administrative committees.

A reference ballot and bios for the candidates are posted on the following webpage: /online-tools/interactive-utilities/voting-surveys/

All voting is electronic. Please use the following link to vote: https://senext.ucsd.edu/secure/inquiry/ballot/2021_Spring_Election

The voting system will authenticate your identity via the campus Single Sign-On system and is designed to maintain the confidentiality of the voting process by keeping track of who has voted, but not how each member votes. Once the ballot is submitted, neither the voter nor anyone else can change the votes. To minimize technical difficulties while completing the voting ballot, please refrain from using your browser’s forward and backward buttons. Instead, use the “previous” and “next” buttons provided on the ballot form to navigate between screens.

Access questions may be directed to Trevor Buchanan at tdbuchanan@ucsd.edu.

The San Diego Division will continue voting until 4:30 p.m., Wednesday, May 19, 2021, which is the deadline for all votes to be cast.

Thank you for voting!


Tara Javidi
Vice Chair
Academic Senate, San Diego Division
