Executive Elections Referendum
Currently, the ICSS General Election is held during the Winter Semester, where Executives, Directors, and Constituency Representatives – with the exception of the First-Year Students’ Representatives – are elected.
If the following amendment is approved, there shall be two separate elections during the Winter Semester, designated the ICSS Executive Election and the ICSS General Election. The ICSS Executive Election will be where the President, Executive Vice-President, Vice-President Finance, and Vice-President Internal are elected. This election will precede the ICSS General Election.
The ICSS General Election will be held after the Executive Election. This will be where the Directors and Constituency Representatives will be elected. If a position remains vacant after the Executive Elections conclude, the position will re-open for nomination and be included in the General Election.
With the ICSS Executive (President, Executive Vice-President, Vice-President Finance, Vice-President Internal), the positions are often uncontested. To increase opportunities for involvement within the ICSS, two elections (ICSS Executive Election and the ICSS General Election) will occur on different time schedules where an Innis Students shall be given the opportunity to run for positions in both elections, given that a student was not elected to a position during the ICSS Executive Election. This shall increase both interest and participation in ICSS elections, while allowing students an increased chance at being elected to a position on council.
Are you in favour of amending Section 10 of the ICSS Constitution to allow for the creation of a new schedule to establish a two tier election system consisting of the ICSS Executive Election and the ICSS General Election?
- The ICSS Executive Election shall be held prior to the ICSS General Election for the sole purpose of electing the Executive Team.
- In the case that a position remains vacant, the position shall be added to the ballot in the ICSS General Election.
- All other rules pertaining to the ICSS Executive Election shall follow existing election guidelines as outlined in the ICSS Constitution.
- The beginning of the nomination period of the ICSS General Election shall not begin until the conclusion of the ICSS Executive Election. The conclusion of the ICSS Executive Election is defined by the public release of the final result.
Yes – 70 votes (PASSED)
No – 5 votes
Spoiled – 8 votes
