Voter turnout for the 2019 MSU Presidential election was 19.6% with 4,283 students voting this year. The full breakdown of votes can be found here: 2019 SRA Results.pdf 

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. 

All results are 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.

The formal minutes of the Election Committee's presidential election fines meeting will be uploaded soon. The Student Representative Assembly (SRA), is the governing body of the MSU, composed of 31 undergraduate students elected by their peers, inside each academic faculty. Together, they work to provide the best possible MSU services and departments, represent and address the concerns of undergraduate students, and lobby the University to improve McMaster’s academic quality. The SRA job description can be found under Nomination Papers.

The number of candidates and seats allocated for the 2019-2020 SRA will be as follows:
