Vice President of Elections

Ryn Weiss '26

Hello, hello! I’m Ryn Weiss, and I have the distinct honor of serving as your Judicial Council Vice President of Elections for the 2023-2024 term. I am a current sophomore, originally from Seattle, but on-campus I live in Badin Hall! Roll Frogs!

I am a pre-law student double majoring in Applied Math (ACMS) and International Economics - German, with a minor in linguistics. Aside from my role within Judicial Council, I am a campus tour guide, a women’s boxer, and a commissioner within Badin. Prior to this year, I served on the Election Committee for the 2022-2023 term.

As Judicial Council Vice-President of Elections, my priorities are as follows:

1. Constitutional Refinement and Reform: Assess procedural and organizational issues presented by the Constitution and work on resolving them. Employ the Election Committee to enact election reform by evaluating current systems and streamlining the process.

2. Clear and Upstanding Elections: Improve communication between the council and the candidates and the Student Body about election procedure, and regulations. Establish a non-partisan Election Committee that will fairly evaluate all allegations of election misconduct, and uphold the impartiality of the Judicial Council.

3. Improve Voter Turnout and Engagement: Support students interested in becoming involved in the Student Union and increase awareness by implementing and expanding new and current methods of informing the Student Body of election proceedings.
