Major Changes: Major Office Elections

This year, we will begin a 2-year transition process to begin electing 4 major offices to serve for the full year before the assembly – not just the 3 days of the current year’s assembly weekend.

In the first year of the transition, we will elect all major offices for 2017, plus, in a separate election, the 4 transitioning offices for the 2018 Assembly.

On Friday we will elect the following Major Officers to serve for the 2017 Assembly:

  • Governor
  • Chief Justice
  • Lt. Governor
  • Secretary of State
  • President of the Senate
  • Speaker of the House
  • Executive Director of Lobbyists

On Sunday we will elect the following officers to serve the entire year and through the 2018 Assembly:

  • Governor
  • Chief Justice
  • Lt. Governor
  • Secretary of State

More details, including how to run for the offices for the 2018 Assembly, will be given to each delegation and will be available in the Advisor Manual. If you have any questions, please contact the Youth and Government Office.
