BGSS Elections 2017-2018: Voting Time!

Dear Biochemistry,

It’s time to go to the polls and elect our BGSS Co-Presidents for 2017-18. This morning you should receive an electronic ballot allowing you to cast your vote for president. We are also asking you to vote to accept or not some amendments to the constitutionPolls are open for 2 days – July 10th and 11th.

You could also access the ballot by going into and logging-in with your usual McGill credentials.

Our presidential candidates are: Amr Omer, Emily Tang and Valerie Vinette.

There was a bit of a glitch this morning, so you if you’ve already voted you may have to do so again. (Sorry!) As of 11am today it will be re-open and we are going to ask you to rank the 3 candidates with your 1st and 2nd place candidates being the 2 you want for co-presidents. Sorry for the confusion.

If you have any problems voting, please contact Manmeet at (and cc immediately.

It’s very important we get as many votes as possible to achieve quorum, so please vote and encourage others to vote. Otherwise we will have to be doing this again soon!

Thanks so much!
Laura Jones
BGSS Chief Returning Officer
