Committee Roles

 There are no roles currently up for election, but if you
would like to get involved, please come along to an open
meeting or message us on social media – there are always
opportunities to volunteer!

Voting Process

It will be possible to vote in person at the meeting
or by email if you’re not able to attend the meeting.
Voting for committee roles will be held by Alternative
Vote, except for Floating Committee roles which will
be done by Multi-Member First Past the Post system,
where you will chose four candidates.

Voting in Person

The nominees for the various positions will be written on as
a list at the meeting. Everyone will have a piece of paper,
a ballot paper, on which they can write down the nominees
they want to vote for.

Alternative Vote

Number the nominees in order of preference. You do not have
to give a preference to every candidate – if there is a
candidate you don’t want to vote for at all, you can
just leave them off your list. You can also vote “RON”,
or “reopen nominations”, if you think that there are no
other suitable candidates and it would be better to rerun
the election for that position.

Multi-Member First Past the Post 

For Floating Committee members – you will write down the names of
up to eight candidates you would like to vote for. The eight candidates
who receive the greatest percentage of the votes will be elected.
You can also vote “RON”, or “reopen nominations”, if you think that
there are no other suitable candidates and it would be better to
rerun the election.

Counting Ballots

Once all the ballots are collected, they will be counted individually
for every committee position. Results will be announced as soon
after the meeting as possible, once all ballots (in person and online)
have been counted. This will probably take a couple of days.
