Welcome to the Cal State East Bay ASI Elections page! The ASI Elections committee is a dedicated group of student leaders who are charged with the oversight and management of the student government elections. The committee is selected each year as part of the ASI committee application and interview process. This page serves to provide the Cal State East Bay community with all details relating to ASI Elections.

The ASI Election Committee

The committee is comprised of 5 student leadership positions who receive stipends to oversee the elections process: Chair, Vice Chair, Events & Marketing Coordinator, Ethics Coordinator, and Volunteer Coordinator. Position descriptions can be found at ASI Elections Committee Position Descriptions
  • The committee is supported by an advisor team of Marguerite Hinrichs (Director of Student Life & Leadership Programs) and James Carroll (Director of Student Conduct, Rights & Responsibilities) along with Erik Pinlac (Executive Director of ASI).
  • The committee is always looking for additional student volunteers to help plan and staff election activities. This is a great way to get involved at a lower commitment and support your student government! If interested, please contact asielections@csueastbay.edu
