The votes are in and the results have been ratified by the Elections Committee.  Josh Marando won the 2019 MSU presidential election and is president-elect of the McMaster Students Union. The President takes office on May 1, 2019 but will begin the transition process in the coming weeks. Voter turnout for the 2019 MSU Presidential election was 26.8% with 6576 students voting this year.

The Elections Committee, charged with overseeing all elections of and within the MSU, has completed the campaign evaluation process by assessing fines and addressing complaints levied against candidates. Results are considered unofficial at this time. All candidates have five business days to appeal their fines and contest the results. Appeals will be heard first by the Elections Committee. Subsequent appeals will be heard by the Electoral Appeal Board. Decisions of the Electoral Appeal Board are final.

Round-by-round elections results:


The formal minutes of the Election Committee's presidential election fines meeting will become publicly available.  The minutes must be first be prepared and subsequently ratified by the Elections Committee at a meeting in the near future.  However, all presidential candidates have already received all relevant documentation and evidence used by the Elections Committee to determine fines.
