USG Tempe 

USG elections switched to ranked choice voting this year, as it eliminated the need for runoff elections, which have caused problems in the past, Joshua Valenzuela, the assistant USG elections commissioner for the Tempe campus, said over a Zoom call Thursday.

This led to a recalculation and reversal the day after results were announced.

The executive ticket with Kate Hostal for president, Alexander Lewis for vice president of service and Aidan Sigmund for vice president of policy won for USGT on Thursday, but after the Hopkins ticket, with John Hopkins for president, Taryn Quigley for vice president of policy and Torie Hayes for vice president of service, contested the results Friday, the Election Commission reevaluated and declared the Hopkins ticket the winner.
