New Voting Software is Debuting this Year!

This year we are excited to debut a new voting platform for Student Government elections, Voatz. This new platform will allow students to have more options on how they would like to cast their vote. You can still vote from a computer or polling station but now voting via an app has been added. Voatz spent a week on campus connecting with student organizations and tabling in the MSC area in order to get out information surrounding the elections and how to vote.

If you have any technical issues with voting please contact Voatz at or call 727-515-3832.

Campaign Signage

Please note: all campaign signage must follow the temporary campus signage approval process facilitated by the Center for Leadership and Civic Engagement (CLCE). Contact Katie Leonard ( to get approval and for all questions regarding temporary campus signage. Temporary campus signage refers to both A-Frames and yard signs. Both of these types of signs must be approved, placed only in the signage locations, and have a sticker on them. For more information on the Universities signage policy please click HERE.
