Elections & Referenda

There are no elections at this time.

During election season, visit our Upcoming Elections page for information about positions, candidates, and their statements. All election activities will be held entirely online. Please stay tuned to this page, the SSMU social media, and newsletters for timely updates year-round.

How Our Elections Work

Each year, the SSMU hosts elections so that students have the opportunity to make a difference in their student government and to campaign on the issues that matter to them and their communities.  You can nominate yourself and campaign to represent your fellow students at the Board or Executive level. These elections primarily take place in the winter semester of each year. Every SSMU member is encouraged to run in our elections.

All voting takes place online using our online electronic voting service, Simply Voting. To view past ballots, or vote in the UTSU’s elections, please visit ssmu.simplyvoting.com and sign in using your McGill Username and password.

If you’re interested in our elections, but you aren’t sure whether or not you’d like to run, please consider reaching out to the representatives holding positions you are interested in.
