3 Referendum Questions!
Founded in 1963, the University of Victoria Students’ Society (UVSS) strives to represent the interests of all undergraduate students at the University of Victoria. The UVSS provides services, events, and political advocacy to students, and administers and provides resources to clubs and course unions. All UVSS members can vote for up to sixteen candidates (one Director of Campaigns and Community Relations, one Director of Events, one Director of Finance and Operations, one Director of Outreach and University Relations, one Director of Student Affairs, and, eleven Directors-at- Large). Please note: the five titled director positions are termed “Lead Directors” and comprise the UVSS Executive. There is no ‘Chair’ or ‘President’ position.
In this 2018 Election, there are two contested lead director positions, and three approval/disapproval votes for uncontested lead director positions.
Information on the Approval \ Disapproval Vote: From the UVSS bylaws, section 6.8.e states: “If only one nomination is received for a particular Executive position, members shall be asked on the ballot to approve or disapprove of the nominee. The nominee must receive the approval of the majority of ballots cast to be declared duly elected.”
Eligibility: All individuals who have paid UVSS fees in this current semester are eligible to vote for elections to the Board of Directors and on Referendum questions.
Voting: UVSS Election and Referenda voting will take place Feb. 28th 9 am – March 2nd, 12 pm, online at webvote.uvic.ca.
