Elections is a web-based voting system that can be used by student organizations, clubs, or campus departments to hold elections.


Voting populations for an election can be selected by student level (undergraduate or graduate), major, college, or based on a custom list of UIC NetIDs or UINs (University ID Numbers). Elections can be configured to start and end on specific dates.

The answers to the questions can be the following:

  • true or false
  • multiple choice (with custom limit of choices)


UIC NetID and common password are required to set up an election and to vote.


Elections are available to UIC students, faculty, and staff only.


There is no charge for this service.
