Secure online voting.

Saitsa utilizes a platform called Simply Voting  Simply Voting is a web-based online voting system that manages Saitsa’s elections easily and securely. Saitsa staff and the CRO coordinate the development of the ballot; the voter list is uploaded with student numbers only, no names, so your vote is confidential.

Single Transferable Vote

Saitsa uses the Single Transferable Vote system to elect its representatives. Under this system, voters rank the candidates in order of preference whereby voters rank their most preferred candidate as ‘1’ and their second most preferred candidate as ‘2’ and so on. This system closely approaches proportional representation and is generally considered a more fair voting system. For more information on how STV works within Saitsa please consult our Election Policies & Procedures.

WHO can vote?

Any student who pays Saitsa fees can vote in the SAIT Students’ Association elections. If you pay Saitsa fees and have not received your voting email please check your junk folder; if you still cannot find the email please submit a ‘voter issue form’ found at the top of this page.

WHY should I vote?

These dedicated students will set the framework for the Students’ Association for years to come, which will impact the events and services offered and how your membership fees are spent. VOTE and help shape your student experience!
