The Daily Californian will be updating this page with the results of the 2016 ASUC general elections, announced Friday at the annual ASUC tabulations ceremony at 7:30 p.m. in Arthur Andersen Auditorium.

Voting took place online and in person April 4, 5 and 6, with students able to rank candidates for executive office and for senate. As well, four referendums were on the ballot. In this year’s election, 12,559 students voted.

After first-rank choices are calculated, the votes that would have gone to the candidates with the least number of votes are redistributed to whomever the voter ranked second. The process continues until a clear winner emerges.

If a candidate reaches a certain quota, the tabulation program will not allocate any more votes to that candidate. This is because even if another candidate were to receive all other votes, they would still not defeat the candidate who reaches the quota.
