2022-23 Student Council Election Updates

Student Council, Aidan Ang
May. 7, 2022, 2:27 pm

Hey Mac!
We've received a few questions on election guidelines, rules and where election resources can be found, so I'll try to address them all in a post here. An online dropbox has been created for the mandatory 30 student signatures (due May 13th); the link for that, along with the candidate form, teacher reference form, and info meeting slides can be found at the end of this post.
Next - a few FAQ's:

Only current Grade 9's may vote for the Junior Representative position.
All students, including graduating students, may vote for any position. The sole exception is the Junior Representative position, as listed above.
Teacher references must be from teachers currently teaching at Mackenzie.
Candidates for appointed positions also need 30 signatures from students supporting their candidacy.

These FAQ's, along with any others that may come up in the future, will be listed on a Google Doc also linked below.
