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.
