Ashley Charnley | Wednesday, January 23, 2008

Saint Mary’s student body vice president Kelly Payne announced at the Board of Governance (BOG) meeting Tuesday that the 2008-09 student government elections will be held Jan. 29. Payne said flyers will be posted the day of the election to remind students to vote.

On election day, students will access PRISM through their personal Web pages to vote, Payne said.

In other BOG news:
