Election Candidate Information

Nomination packages are available online or from the SU office once the Notice of Nomination has been posted. All potential nominees and campaigners are strongly encouraged to familiarize themselves with the contents of these documents. Any breach or infraction of the content of these documents by an authorized member of a campaign team or candidate will be imputed to such candidate, and such candidate will be held accountable for the breach or infraction. Accordingly, it is strongly suggested that each candidate make their respective campaign teams fully aware of the election rules and their importance. Individuals wishing to make a complaint about the Election may fill out the form and drop it off at the SU office (MSC 251).


Election Complaint Form

The Students’ Union Bylaws and the SU Election Policy describe the rules for the SU election from the nomination to the appeal process.


Candidate Forum Hosting

Individuals or groups from the campus community who wish to host a Candidate Forum for the SU General Election during campaign week and would like the SU to assist with advertising may fill out the Forum Request Form. The SU does not host forums for the By-Elections.
