Guidelines & Policies


Students will only be able to vote for positions in the constituencies that apply to them. All students will still have the chance to vote for executive positions, and a few other general positions. For example:

  • If you are a Fine Arts student, vote for the Fine Arts Director
  • If you are a Campion student in the Faculty of Arts, vote for the Campion Director AND the Arts Director.
  • If you are a Graduate student through Campion College in the Faculty of Arts, vote for the Grad Director, Campion Director, AND Faculty of Arts Director.

The questions on the ballot will say who is eligible to vote for the question. If you vote for a candidate in a constituency that you DO NOT belong to, your vote for this position will be removed from the final count. Only your votes for constituencies that you DO belong to will still remain valid.

Students vote through UR Self-Service.

  1. Login using your Student ID # and PIN.
  2. Under the Student Services headline, there will be a link to the ballot.
  3. Fill in ALL the answers to the Ballot questions (that you are eligible for).
  4. Click “Survey Complete” to submit your ballot.
