Tufts Community Union Elections Board, 1981
Created in 1981, the Tufts Community Union (TCU) Elections Board (ELBO) is a student government body for the undergraduate and the College of Engineering. ELBO organizes and conducts elections to the TCU Senate, TCU Judiciary (TCUJ), and the Committee on Student Life (CSL), as well as elections of cultural and commuter representatives, and student referenda. As of 2000, it is charged with insuring fair elections procedures, resolving all ties and grievances and arbitrating any disputes concerning an election.
No members of, or candidates for, the TCU Senate, TCUJ, or CSL may sit on the Elections Board, although representatives from these bodies are charged with appointing the five ELBO officials at the beginning of the second semester each year. ELBO members' terms run from February to the following December. In-house elections occur for the positions of Chair and Treasurer.
