The MyCourses poll for student government elections will be extended for first-year students until 10 a.m. Friday, said Elections Board Chair Kening Tan ‘12 at the general body meeting of the Undergraduate Council of Students Wednesday. Non-freshmen still must finish voting by Thursday at noon.

The election extension comes after members of the class of 2013 could not access the ballot on Tuesday because their names had not been added to the course list. The issue on MyCourses was resolved Wednesday morning, Tan said, adding that the Elections Board decided to extend the election for freshman so that they would have the full 48-hour window to vote. The board sent an e-mail to all freshmen Wednesday evening, notifying them of the change.

"For sophomores through seniors, nothing will change," said UCS President Clay Wertheimer '10.

Candidates can continue campaigning until Friday with material that has already been approved by the board, but cannot introduce more material, Tan said.

The results of the election will be announced at 3:30 p.m. Friday at the Quiet Green side of Manning Hall.

At the meeting, UCS also discussed fundraising plans to address flood damage in Providence that occurred in late March.

Wertheimer met with the Brown Concert Agency on Tuesday to discuss doing a "Miracle Minute" collection between sets at Saturday's Spring Weekend concert. During the 15-minute break between the Black Keys and Snoop Dogg, members of UCS would collect money from students for 10 minutes. "I think visibility has gone up over the last week," Wertheimer said, adding that "the event of Spring Weekend is perfect timing" for fundraising.
