SUS Elections and By-Elections

The annual electoral cycle begins each February with voting taking place in early March. It's during this period all of our members are given an opportunity to either run or vote for who they wish to represent their voice in the SUS, to UFV administration, levels of Government, and other stakeholders.

In the event Executive or Board of Director roles go unfulfilled, the Board of Directors can call a by-election. These can occur at any time throughout the year depending on the circumstances and discretion of the Board.
