2018 CUSA By-Elections Voting Days

The CUSA By-Elections Voting Days are March 21st and 22nd, 2018. The ballot will be released on the morning of Wednesday March 21st by 8 am with ballots closing at 10 pm on Thursday March 22nd . The ballot will be sent out electronically to all CUSA members’ Carleton cmail accounts.

If you are unable to vote on your own personal device, you will be able to access your Carleton cmail from our five (5) polling stations located in the University Centre Atrium, Library Tunnel level, Loeb Tunnel level, Athletics Welcome Centre (Alumni Hall), and Residence Commons Tunnel level. The Polling Stations will start at 9am and close at 10pm on each day of voting.

Any CUSA member is able to vote at any of these polling stations. The CUSA Elections Office asks that all voters only vote on their own personal device or at a polling station and that they DO NOT use any candidates’ device, or any device belonging to a campaign volunteer, to vote. This is a secret ballot and no voter should ever be unduly forced to vote for any particular candidate.

If you see any campaign worker, volunteer, or candidate watching a voter vote, showing a voter how to vote, or a voter using a candidate’s or volunteer’s personal device while voting, please inform the Elections Office immediately. If you as a voter have any issues voting please see one of the Poll Clerks at a polling station or come by the Elections Office itself. It is a violation for any candidate and/or volunteer to facilitate or persuade a voter to vote on a device that does not belong to the voter. Again your vote is secret and no one should be watching you vote or choosing how you vote.

If you have any questions please see us in the CUSA Elections Office in 129B UC (beside the ISSO) or you can reach us at elections@cusaonline.ca or by phone at (613) 520-2600 x1566.
