Even though candidates won't be able to campaign on campus, Duke Student Government and class council elections are still happening this April. This will be the third and final undergraduate student body election of the year, after Ibrahim Butt won the Young Trustee election and Tommy Hessel won the DSG presidential election.
The Chronicle was provided with the names of the candidates for class council and DSG vice presidents and senators by Attorney General John Markis, who is also a senior news reporter for The Chronicle. The election will be held online from Thursday, April 16 at noon to April 17 at noon. Each class elects two senators for each committee.
