Before an FJC student could be selected as Homecoming Queen, she had to fill out a petition listing the names of fifty students advocating her candidacy. Generally, the most important move was to find a campus club to financially back her. It was customary for each club or group to run one co-ed for Queen and one for Princess. After the booths were created and banners displayed, the candidates were formally presented to the students at an assembly provided just for that purpose, and immediately afterwards, the polls were open. Homecoming elections were held for two days.
