Campaign Period 2017-09-28T11:29:23+00:00

The Campaign Period offers you an opportunity to let students know your platform, your ideas to improve student life, as well as why you feel you would be an effective representative for your constituents.

All candidates must follow the Bylaw and Election policy when campaigning. The Chief Returning Officer addresses complaints against candidates on a case-by-case basis and will implement the appropriate sanctions (including disqualification if necessary).

The USSU Bylaw and the Election Policies describe the rules for the election, from the nomination period to the appeal process.
