*The Cadre is aware that the published total does not equal the individual vote counts provided. We have reached out to the SU for clarification. They explained that the numbers appear distorted because students had the option to either abstain, vote for one candidate or vote for two candidates, and so, while there were a total of 243 voters, a total of 366 votes were cast.
