Dear Members of the Vietnamese Student Union,

Thank you all for participating in the 2016 Vietnamese Student Union Elections (Part 1). To assure validity, the votes were counted and monitored by a UCLA full-time employee and Community Programs Office (CPO) Internship Director, Chidera Izuchukwu, on May 4th, 2016 at 9:30pm.

In order for uncontested positions to be elected, candidates must receive a confidence vote of at least 50%. The results are as follows.


Evelyn Ma
