Spring 2021 Election Results

Note From The University Board of Elections and 2021 Election Statistics

Hello everyone,


Thank you for participating in the Spring 2021 University-Wide Elections. This year, over 10,000 students voted, and we had an incredible turnout of 41.6%, which is more than double our turnout from the Spring 2020 Elections. In addition, 25.4% of students voted on the proposed referenda compared to the previous yearly average of 8% of students. A full breakdown of elections statistics can be found below.

Thank you to all the candidates for running this year and making this a contentious election. We recognize that this was a very different type of election cycle than UVA is used to, and we appreciate all the work that each of you did this year. Thank you to the endorsing organizations who spent hours interviewing candidates to determine who they thought was best equipped to lead UVA out of this pandemic. We appreciate the diverse perspectives that you brought to this process. Thank you to the countless organizations and councils that distributed marketing materials. Also, thank you to the Cavalier Daily and the UVA Democracy Initiative for their assistance and support during this process.

Finally, thank you to the students who voted. We appreciate each of you taking the time out of your busy lives to further the UVA tradition of student self-governance. Additionally, the list of students who were selected to win the election prizes is posted here.

Thank you again to everyone involved in this process, and we hope you all have an excellent rest of your semester.
