MSU’s student government, the Associated Students of MSU (ASMSU), held its general election this week to choose student leaders for the 2021-22 academic year.

A total of 1,669 students cast ballots, a voter turnout of 11%.

Students voted in favor of a proposed $4.55 per semester increase in ASMSU student activity fees to support expansion of the Streamline public transportation system. The increase will go toward an updated bus route and increased bus frequency. Proposed student fee increases must not only be approved by the majority of the voting student body but also by the Montana Board of Regents.

The election results are as follows. Winners are marked with bold type.
