Statement Regarding the March 6th Election

The StFX Students’ Union Office of the Chair would like to formally extend an apology to all students who voted in yesterday’s election for Board of Governors Student Representative. The results of this election have been voided by the Elections Committee. The WUSC Referendum, Senior Class Co-Presidents and Graduate Class Speaker results still stand. 

Material in the Candidate Package conflicted with a subsection of the StFX Students’ Union Election Act. An appeal was submitted to the Elections Committee regarding a decision made by the Chairs Office, referencing these conflicting documents. The Returning Officers strive to conduct elections within the bounds and under the authority of the St. Francis Xavier Students’ Union Elections Act.

The Elections Committee apologizes for this void election that was put forth for the Students’ Union Board of Governors Student Representative Position. Voting will restart at 8:00 am on Wednesday, March 14th, 2018, and will end at 4:00 pm. Please be aware that your voter username and password will be sent out to your Inbox / Junk Email folder the morning of March 14th, 2018.

Any questions can be forwarded to the Returning Officers (, or to the Chair of Council (
