Elections may be held three times a year. The General Election takes place once a year during the Spring semester in April. During the General Election, all seats are open for election.

Special Elections take place at the beginning of each semester if there are vacancies in the senate. To run in any of the elections, a candidate must fill out and submit the candidate application form to the ASUH Office. Specific rules and dates are outlined for campaigning in the candidate application packet.

In order to run for Senate, you must meet the following requirements:

   1. Be a full time (12+ credits) classified, undergraduate student at UH Manoa     
   2. Have a cumulative GPA of at least 2.0  

In the candidate application packet, candidates must obtain 25 signatures from students in their college. However, candidates, especially those who are running in colleges or schools with a smaller student population- who have a harder time collecting signatures, may bypass this requirement by being directly nominated on the senate floor. To be nominated, talk to a senator or call the ASUH Office and let them know you would like to be nominated and for which position you would like to be nominated for. Candidates who are nominated on the floor must still complete the rest of the candidate packet.
