Students elected new Duke Student Government senators and vice presidents in an online election Thursday and Friday.

A proposed constitutional amendment failed because election turnout was 19.2% and a 25% turnout was required for it to be ratified. Of the students who voted, 92.8% voted yes on the amendment.

Below are the election results. Attorney General Jason Scharff, a senior, provided The Chronicle with the results Friday evening.
