Wilf Campus Fall 2019 Election Results

The Wilf Campus student body voted in the Fall 2019 Wilf Campus undergraduate student government elections on Tuesday, Sept. 24. The results of the election were provided to The Commentator by the Canvassing Committee, which oversees student government elections.

The election held races for Student Organization of Yeshiva (SOY) PR Secretary, Sy Syms School of Business Student Council (SSSBSC) Treasurer and Yeshiva Student Union (YSU) freshman and sophomore class representatives. YSU freshman and sophomore class representative elections are held every fall semester, since it is many of these students’ first time on campus. The SOY PR Secretary and SSSBSC Treasurer elections were held last spring, but the candidates resigned after being elected, prompting the fall election to fill the seats.

“I would like to thank the TRUE freshmen of YU for voting me in as freshman representative,” said Baruch Lerman (YC ‘23), newly elected YSU freshman class representative. “I can't wait for a great year with all of you, and I am looking forward to some amazing events.”

In total, 476 out of 1082 Wilf Campus students, or 43.9% of eligible voters, voted for SOY PR Secretary — the only campus-wide position on the ballot, according to the Canvassing Committee. Listed below are the winners of each race:
