Eligibility to Participate:

The “Procedures for Election” require that the two students elected to the Board must be from different programs. Therefore, the student receiving the highest number of votes will be elected to one position. The student receiving the highest number of votes, who is in a different program from the first highest, will be declared elected to the position. Each nominee must declare that s/he has every reason to believe that s/he will be able to fulfill the term of office and must be nominated by five other recognized members of the student body. 

Nomination forms are also available through the Student Union office or from the following staff in the Administration and Registration offices at the campus:

Hazelton Leah Marshall
Prince Rupert Em McConville
Smithers Mary Hiemstra
Terrace Emma Shack

Completed nomination forms are to be returned to the Registrar’s office by 4:00 pm on September 19, 2017. Qualified nominees will be notified by the Registrar following the close of nominations and prior to the campaign period.  If at the close of the nomination period there is only one candidate per seat available, the nominated candidate will be declared elected.

The polling stations will be set up in the Registration office at the Terrace Campus, in the library at the Prince Rupert campus, and at the registration desks at all other campuses for voting on October 2, 2017.  This information has been posted by the Registrar as the Electoral Officer.  If you have any questions, please contact Stephen Salem, Registrar & Director, Institutional Research by email: or phone: 250.638.5416.
