This was the first election since the ["Winter 2005 ASUCD Election"] to have three slates running for Senate and also the first election in several years to have no Independent candidate elected to the Senate. There were only three Independent candidates on the ballot in the ["Winter 2013 ASUCD Election"] and their support was minimal despite the fact that one candidate was part of a large campus organization, (["Mustard Seed Ministry"]) and another was endorsed by the Aggie and spent a significant amount of time on his campaign.
