SENATE- b/c we need more

Results for this year's Senate election show a very competitive field.

The results for the Board of Governors undergraduate student representative position were also announced. 

Out of the 38,565 eligible voters, 5,261, or 13.6 per cent, voted in the election.

Elections for the undergraduate student science senator positions are currently being rerun. BMSc students in year three and four were inaccurately included in the voter’s list for this category. Results were deemed invalid and the new elections are being held. 

The new elections will be held from 8 a.m. on Feb. 15 until 8 p.m. on Feb. 16.

Editor's Note (Feb. 15, 2017):

An earlier version of this article erroneously stated that no positions had been acclaimed in the student Senate elections. Two Senate seats — Business, Law, Engineering and Law, and Schulich — were acclaimed. The article has been updated accordingly.
