Run-off elections are held when no candidate receives more than 50 percent of the vote.
Prentice, the current Student Body Vice-President, won the SBP office over current Student Body Secretary Katie Perkins.
“The first thing that went through my mind was just thanking those that supported me and thanking Katie for running a great race,” Prentice said. “I’m just really excited to see what this produces for SMU next year.”
Prentice garnered 257 more votes than Perkins, with 1,179 votes to 922. He says right now his plan is to do the things he put on his platform.
