Martel’s voting body is known as the Parliament, a term that reminds most of the British system but is in fact a reference to Martel’s Greek roots. Like the Greek Hellenic Parliament, Martel’s Parliament is an elected, representative body that is in charge of all official happenings around the college. Completely student led, Parliament is made up of two main groups: the Executive Council (EC) and the Class Representatives.

The majority of Parliament is composed of the Class Reps. Each class elects four representatives to serve on Parliament. Rising Class Reps are elected in the Spring semester, and the freshman class elects their representatives shortly after arrival on campus during their first Fall semester. Representatives serve as voting members during weekly sessions and are charged with representing the interests of their class in addition to serving Martel with committee participation.
