In keeping with the tradition of Northern Illinois University, there will be five King and five Queen candiates chosen by interviews. There will then be a campuswide election to determine the King and Queen. The Homecoming court will be comprised of the four runner-ups for King and Queen. Each organization, residence hall or residence floor, is welcome to participate by sponsoring their favorite candidate for King and/or Queen.
Voting takes place in DuSable Hall and at the Holmes Student Center between 9 am and 6 pm on October 9th.
The results will be announced at the Bonfire and Pep Rally on Friday, October 11, 2013.
