Attention Voters – Special Notice

There are 12 available positions for the Board of Directors, however only 10 candidates are running for election.

What does this mean?

This means that the election turns into a Yes/No balloting system. To be elected a candidate must receive more YES than NO votes.

  • If you vote “YES”, this means you support the candidate and you want them to represent SAIT students for the next year.
  • If you vote “NO”, this means you do not support the candidate, or do not want them to represent SAIT students for the next year.
  • If you choose to abstain, you are saying that you do not have enough information, or do not have an opinion on the candidate.

You can vote Yes, No or Abstain for EACH candidate.

You can vote for any number of candidates you want to, up to 10; you could vote for only 1, 2…or all 10 candidates with either a yes, no or abstain vote.

If you are having issues voting or have questions please submit this form.

Students are able to access a secure link to the election ballot and sign on with their SAIT student email (subject is “Vote Here”) during the voting period. Day or night, you can vote from anywhere!  All you need is a valid SAIT student email address.
