Hello Acadia Students,

As you may know, there have been some concerns raised by students about the recent election, and some decisions taken which may have impacted the results of the elections for President and Science Senator.

 

We have listened to students about the best way to move forward.  We recognize the importance of transparency and accountability within this process.

 

Out of an abundance of caution, and to fully protect both the integrity and the perception of the integrity of the process, the ASU will conduct a new election for President and Science Senator over the next week. The results of all other positions elected in the March 2022 General Election will stand. In the interest of fairness, only candidates who ran in the last election are eligible for nomination in this election.

 

The ASU is aware of the precarious state of democracy everywhere. We know how fortunate we all are as students to have the opportunity to participate in the democratic process, and to make decisions that will impact the experience of our fellow students. This is your Union, and your voice matters.

 

Whether you voted in the previous election or not, this is a second chance for you to make your voice heard. The last year has shown us the importance of leadership and strong student voices, and we hope you will take the opportunity to find your voice by voting this week.

 

Campaigning will occur on April 5th and 6th, with voting on April 7th and 8th.

 

More information on the election can be found in the updated 2022 Supplementary Election Agreement and on our elections site.

 

If you have any further questions that are not answered in this document, you can reach Chief Returning Officer Chantal Peng at 147115p@ACADIAU.CA.
