The office of the Student Government Elections Board remains vacant most of the time, as the chair of the board lives on FAU’s Jupiter campus. Ryan Klimar, the marketing director for the Elections Board, has been frustrated with Gregory Barber’s absence, and thinks it has to do with him being a Jupiter student: “He’s not in Boca, he’s not where the action happens. The representation of Broward and Jupiter towards FAU is important, … but when you’re choosing university-wide leadership positions, they need to be centered in Boca.”

The flipped flag symbolizes the chaos the elections office faced over the past two months. “The elections are done so I guess I’ll just—” Elections Board Marketing Director Ryan Klimar said as he reached over to flip the flag right side up. “I flipped that two months ago.” In February, the Student Government elections for the next president, vice president and campus governors kicked off, but they didn’t go smoothly.
