Student union by-election pushed back

    A student union by-election slated to happen Nov. 9 and 10  has been postponed until Nov. 12 and 13.

    The by-election was scheduled last week after Vice President Administration Corben McLean submitted his resignation.

    The election move comes after off-campus representative Mitch Messom resigned from his position, creating a need for a second by-election. Union by-laws (which can be found here) stipulate a three-day nomination period, a three-day campaign period, and at least one business day between the two periods.

    Rather than run two separate by-elections, the union opted to push back the VP administration election to coincide with that of the off-campus representative election.

    Nominations for the two positions are open until Nov. 3.

    Messom resigned his position to run for VP administration.
