The Elections Board at the Modesto Maidique Campus released this year’s Student Government Association election Senate results Tuesday, and presidential results Thursday.

Alexandra Valdes and Alexandra Ibarria of The Future Is You party will be students’ next SGA president and vice-president.

On the other hand, SGC-BBC will not have a president because no one signed up to run

A full list of the newly elected senators and their positions can be found below.

As we reported recently, this year’s elections were riddled with misconduct. A total of 11 elections violation cases were decided, involving candidates, students, and current SGA officials. Some students questioned the validity of the election itself.

SGC-MMC elections commissioner Tatiana Arevalo said the results for president and vice-president would be announced Thursday since two of the candidates were in the midst of an appeals process.

Presidential and vice-presidential candidates Rose Ingraham and Molly Schantz of the Roar! party were both disqualified the night before elections began, with students being notified mid-election after many had already cast their votes.

Ingraham and Schantz remained on the ballot, and appealed the ruling, arguing the court failed to follow proper procedure. On April 16, their appeal was granted, with Elizabeth Bejar, senior vice president for academic and student affairs, writing the court did not have jurisdiction over the case.

Roar! graduate senator Angel Algarin was also disqualified but reinstated in the race. Newly elected senator Jourdan (Ha) Le was separately disqualified but is also appealing. Thursday’s updated senate results are below.

No one ran for an executive position at the Biscayne Bay Campus. Their two senate candidates won unopposed.

The two ballot referendums also passed, and will be added to the SGA’s constitution.

At MMC, 22 senators are from The Future Is You party, 11 are from the Roar! party, and three are independents.
