The UPEI Student Union has released the list of candidates who are running in its fall election. This year we will see 30 students competing for 14 positions. Voting is scheduled for Tuesday, October 3rd and Wednesday, October 4th. Results will be announced on October 4th at The Wave, estimated time for results is 9:45 pm.

This will be the first year in which Campus Login is not used as the voting platform; instead, students will vote via SimplyVoting. When students log on to myUPEI on voting days there will be a link which will redirect them to the new voting site. New features on SimplyVoting include photos of each candidate and descriptions of why each candidate is running.
The Cadre will have further coverage on the election as it happens.
