Two ballot measures will be open for undergraduate voting:

Digital UCards

Digital UCard Flyer

Many institutions are starting to make student IDs available on smart devices in an effort to reduce plastic waste and costs associated with replacement.

Question 1 seeks to make your UCard available on compatible devices (such as an iPhone or Apple Watch) with access to residence halls, meal swipes, and more. Vote yes to implement it at UMass.

Five Campuses, Five Votes

The UMass Board of Trustees is the governing body for the entire five-campus UMass system, overseeing matters such as tuition and fees. Seventeen members are appointed by the governor, and five are elected by the student bodies of each campus. However, voting rights are alternated between two of the five student members despite the various, unique needs of each campus. Join our Student Trustee in voting yes to make your voice heard for full student representation on the board.
