Universal Elections Committee

Welcome to the UEC Homepage!

The Universal Elections Committee (UEC) is an independent committee that formed to ensure fair and centralized elections here at UMW. Although the UEC webpage is hosted through the SGA Website, the UEC is NOT an organization under SGA. We hope you’ll utilize this space, either as a student voter or as a student candidate, to learn about elections here at UMW and get involved in our student-led organizations! Please visit our resources tabs under the UEC tab to find how to vote and gather resources you may find important if you are running in the elections!
