Nicki Taylor, president of the Student Government Association, announced via email that an emergency SGA Judicial Council meeting will be held next week to hear an election appeal request. 

According to Taylor, the Judicial Council received an anonymous request that Jay Todd Richey be disqualified on April 1. The source said they had photographic proof of campaign materials placed on doors within academic buildings on campus, such as Thompson Complex. According to SGA’s Election Codes, “there shall be no campaign material distributed into or onto doors or doorways on campus.” 

The meeting will take place on April 16 at 4 p.m. in the Senate Chambers inside DSU. The meeting will be open to the public. At the meeting Richey and the anonymous requester will be given a chance to speak to the council. Following the meeting, the Judicial Council will decide on a course of action. 

The Herald will update this story as information becomes available.
