Vote in elections

Choose who you want to represent you on the Bloomington Faculty Council

BFC representatives are the voice of their constituents on a variety issues affecting campus. Care about academic freedom? Interested in educational policies? Have concerns about promotion and tenure? If you can't run for a seat on the council, voting gives you a say on these important issues.

Elections to the BFC are a two-step process. Nominations determine candidates for each voting unit, and a general election then determines who will sit on the Council. The elections process is outlined in Section 4 of the Bylaws of the Bloomington Faculty Council.

The Council recently moved to a self-nominations process in which individuals can choose to run for Council seats. A nominee's eligibility is verified, and all eligible candidates are placed on the final ballot.

Consider running for a seat

Each spring semester, the BFC Office and the BFC Nomination Committee receive self-nominations from individuals wishing to be candidates.

To know if you are eligible to run, please determine your voting unit and whether seats are up for re-election.

At the time of self-nomination, nominees have the option of submitting a candidate statement. These candidate statements are optional but encouraged and provide voters with information to guide their decision-making.

Before the final ballot is determined, nominees are verified for eligibility, and all eligible candidates are placed on the ballot in the general election.
