News Department

After the results of Student Government President and Vice President were delayed from being announced last night, the Student Government Election Board have announced that candidates  Andrew Homann and Samantha Martinez have been disqualified.

The original suspension of Homann-Martinez’s campaign occurred after the candidates were found guilty of receiving endorsements from chartered student organizations, which is against Election Code.

The document issued by the Student Government Supreme Court discloses the Election Board found Homann-Martinez guilty of failing to comply to Board orders, resulting in immediate disqualification of the candidates.

This story will be updated accordingly.
