Although the polls for the 2014 UNBSU General Election closed on Friday, another voting period is set to begin on March 10 due to technical errors with the ballots.
The UNBSU General Election polls closed Friday night. This year’s voter turnout was 17.7 per cent – a 0.2 per cent drop from last year.
Current UNBSU president Ben Whitney said the voter turnout results were expected due to the voting period falling over the March break.
“I would’ve liked it to be higher but with the voting period taking place right now we expected it could be a bit lower. All in all it’s not a bad turnout and we’re looking forward to working with the new exec members.”
There were a few technical errors with ballots this year. Because not all students were able to vote for the Board of Governors positions, the voting event will be re-run starting March 10 at 12:01 a.m. and ending March 14 at 11:59 p.m.
