On behalf of myself, Jessica Fullerton, Chair of Council of the StFX Students’ Union and the Chair’s Office,
The Election’s Act stipulates in Sub-Section 10: Polling and Voting, Article 5.
i. Each voter shall indicate their first choice on the ballot and consecutively rank the remaining candidates as they so choose (voters shall be entitled to mark as few as zero candidates or as many as all of them for any given positions in which they are eligible to vote);
As the Bylaws were not upheld, this did not allow voters to indicate their first choice on the ballot and consecutively rank the remaining candidates as they so choose and were not entitled to mark as few as zero candidates or as many as all of them. This election was in direct violation of our StFX Students’ Union Bylaws, therefore it was necessary that the election be shut down and consider any results to this point void.
We apologize for this void election that was put forth and the Students’ Union General Election and Oland Centre Referendum Voting will restart at 8:00 am on January 24, 2018 and end at 4:00 pm on January 25, 2018. Please be aware that your new voter username and password will be sent out to your Inbox/Junk Email folder the morning of January 24, 2018.
