It’s voting time again—the DGSC 2021-2022 election ballots are OPEN NOW!

The elections close on MAY 3, 2021, 11:59 PM EDT.

The ballot is accessible online through the following link:

To login:

Username = EMPLID (CUNYFirst ID)
Password (all lowercase) = first initial + last initial + 4-digit year of birth

Login instructions are also provided on the login page. All currently enrolled Graduate Center students are eligible to vote. Please note that only names of individuals who were nominated and accepted a nomination will appear on the ballot; however, it is not too late to submit names of write-in candidates! Please remember to select the box next to the write-in candidate name if you choose this option. 

If you see no option to vote for a program representative, that means no one in your program accepted a nomination, and therefore no seat was opened. If you would like to petition to open that seat for the coming year, you may still do so at this time; please contact Katie Anderson ( to begin that process. 

You can see the list of all positions, their descriptions, and duties, as well as eligibility requirements, at

If you have any questions, including about the roles and responsibilities of these DGSC positions, or any trouble accessing ballots, please contact the Co-Chair for Student Affairs, Sharanya Dutta, at

Please share widely!
