There are a total of four positions open on Council for the 2017 elections:
- three positions are three-year terms, as they fill positions for Council members whose terms have ended
- one position is a one-year term to fill a vacancy due to a Council member resignation
As there are only four candidates, we will proceed with a preferential ballot election process in August 2017 to determine who fills the three, three-year positions and who fills the one, one-year position. In a preferential ballot, members will rank the candidates in their preferred order. The candidate with the least amount of first-preference votes will receive the one, one-year term. The remaining candidates will fill the three, three-year terms. This is the process recommended by Simply Voting, the third-party organization that will facilitate the vote for the College.
Nominations are now closed. Nominations were accepted between Tuesday, April 18, 2017 and Monday, May 8, 2017. Thank you to everyone who expressed interest to stand for Council.
