2021 UWSA General Election

Please read the Elections Info page first before filling out a nominations package.

 

The General Election is held annually around March to elect four new executives and representatives to the Board of Directors. Usually candidates would be able to campaign in person on campus, but due to COVID-19, all campaign materials will be made available online by the candidate and on our website to inform students, who are eligible to vote, of the platforms each candidate is running on.

Students are also able to vote on proposed referendums.

The schedule below has all of the important dates and times for this year’s general election. As well, all the important documents are available below, including the nomination package when it is available.
