Candidates have been openly campaigning since filing closed on Feb. 13. There are over 50 campus positions available in Student Government, Graduate Student Assembly, Texas Student Media, University Unions and Events + Entertainment and University Co-op, according to the Office of the Dean of Students.

While filing ended Feb. 13, some positions were left without a candidate. The Election Supervisory Board, which oversees campus elections, granted a three-day extension for the following positions: at-large graduate, graduate, architecture, education, geosciences, law, nursing, pharmacy, public affairs and social work.
