The Duke Student Government vice presidential and senatorial elections are April 10.
Some of the 12 candidates running for election as vice presidents have struggled with attendance in their current positions.
Junior Nikolai Doytchinov, executive vice president, has previously expressed concern about the increasingly poor attendance at DSG Senate meetings.
“When senators skip, DSG loses its input, and constituents lose representation,” Doytchinov previously told The Chronicle.
Title 2, Sections D and E of the DSG Constitution state "two unexcused absences result in bad standing" and "three unexcused absences can result in removal from the Senate."
In order for an absence to be excused, a senator must email the EVP before the meeting with the reason for the missed meeting.
