A secondary election is being held for a student council position that was vacant after the first election. Ballots are now open for the MDiv DL Senior Representative. Please note that only MDiv DL Seniors may vote for this representative.
Please use a Luther Seminary email address to access the ballot form.
The Distributed Learning MA CYF/LIM/CM/Lutheran Ministries Program Representative was also vacant after the first election. Because there were no nominees who accepted their nomination in either election, that position will remain empty for now. Inquiries or questions can be directed to email@example.com.
Elections will be open until Thursday, October 19, at 12 PM (noon) CST.
Thank you for taking the time to vote; your voice is important! If you have any questions, please reach out to the Election Commissioners (below).
Rachel Wyffels and Sarah Yotter
