By: mojohn on Mon, 02/27/2012 - 21:00

Students, get your computers ready!  It's time to vote in the NISG General Election.  Ballots will be available starting at 6:00 AM on Tuesday, February 28 and will be open until 6:00 PM on Wednesday, February 29.  Vote online on your personal computer, or stop by the south side of Chats in Maucker Union between 10:00 AM and 2:00 PM on Tuesday and Wednesday to vote.


To vote, go to MyUNIverse and login. 

Click the "Life at UNI" tab.  

Look for the box that says "Voting and Surveys".  

Click the icon to the right of the ballot name to get started.  Your ballot won't be available until the polls open Tuesday morning at 6:00 AM and won't be available after the polls close Wednesday at 6:00 PM.

Each ballot is customized to your college; if you don't recieive the ballot you are expecting, contact NISG for more information.  At the top of the ballot, you'll see some instructions.  Be sure to read these before you start.  When you are finished, submit your ballot by clicking the "Next" button at the bottom the page.  Then click "Submit My Answers" to finalize your ballot.  Once you receive the thank you page, you know your ballot has been successfully submitted.  If you do not click that second button, your ballot will not be counted.  

If you have a second major and would like to vote in that election also, you may stop by the NISG office between 9:00 AM and 6:00 PM on Tuesday and Wednesday to submit an absentee ballot like this one on the screen.  If you have any issues with the ballot system, contact NISG by e-mail at nisg [at] or by calling us at 319 273 2650.  Results will be announced in Maucker Union after all the ballots have been counted.  Results will also be posted online as soon as possible after the election.
