Problems Voting:

  • In the past, many students believe that they have been presented with the wrong slate of candidates for the Representative positions. PLEASE REMEMBER: the voting is set up to reflect what program you are CURRENTLY enrolled in, NOT the program you hope to eventually graduate in! [ie: if you are intending to graduate as a Management Major, but are currently enrolled in the Faculty of Arts & Science, you will be presented with Arts & Science candidates, not Management candidates] 
  • The voting system will not allow you to vote for more candidates in a given field than the maximum. Please ensure that you have made your proper selection - once you have confirmed your selections, there is no "re-vote" or "correction" available. 
  • Graduate students can not vote! They are members of the Graduate Students' Association, not the Students' Union. 

Please report any voting problems to: su.manager@uleth.ca
