Open Positions

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.
