Eligibility Criteria

The 2016 SAMRU Representation Executive Council elections have passed. Thank you to the students who voted in these elections, and to all the candidates who put their name forward for a position.

Voting Eligibility

All active members of the Students’ Association are able to vote in the election and to run for office on the Students’ Association Representation Executive Council (REC) and Students’ Council.

Eligibility to Run for Office

Essentially, any full-time credit student at Mount Royal University who has maintained a Grade Point Average of at least 2.0 and is a member in good standing of the Students’ Association is eligible to run for office for Executive positions. For Governor positions, students must be enrolled in at least one credit course, maintain a GPA of at least 2.0 and be a member in good standing of SAMRU.

It is suggested that anyone who is interested in running for Representation Executive positions meet with the person currently holding the position and with the Executive Director of the Students’ Association.

Please go to the Students’ Association offices in Room Z222, located on the 2nd floor of Wyckham House for more information.

For more information on Students’ Council and/or the Representation Executive Council, please refer to the most current SAMRU Bylaws. Bylaws are available online and at the SAMRU reception area in Room Z222.

Online Voting

The Students’ Association provides you with an advanced online poll to ensure you are are able to easily exercise your right to vote.

Important Information:

  • Please note that you will be asked to provide your name and student identification number when you access your online ballot. This information will be used only to verify your eligibility to vote.
  • Once you’ve cast your ballot, your name will be crossed off our voter master list.
  • Once your eligibility to vote has been confirmed, all references to your identity will be removed from the ballot.
  • The Chief Returning Officer (Shauna Hunter) supervises the vote independently of SAMRU. Only she or her designate(s) may verify your eligibility to vote. The confidentiality of your vote is assured by this process.
