The Associated Student Government is making its third attempt to get the Student Representation Fee implemented on campus by next fall.

After losing in 2010 and 2011, the initiative is on the ballot for the upcoming elections this month.

The Student Representation Fee is a voluntary $1 donation collected at the time of registration. Its purpose is to provide student governmental affairs representatives the means to state their positions and viewpoints before city, county, district and state government officials, as well as other state agencies.

In order for the $1 student rep fee to be implemented this year, the ballot measure must pass with a two-thirds majority during the ASG elections on March 28 and 29.

However, the number of students who vote in the election for the Student Representation Fee must equal to or exceed the average number of students who voted in the three previous student body elections.

The number to meet this year is 483, which means at least 322 of those voters must vote in favor of the fee.
