IFUMSA Election 2022 – Meet Your Winners

The IFUMSA elections came to an end on Saturday with a few number of surprising results that showed that democracy truly has a say in the association.

The election began at 9 am on Saturday, August 15, 2022, with several IFUMSAites complaining of not receiving their voting codes.

The electoral committee released several broadcast messages encouraging people to exercise patience during the course of the election, which was supposed to end at 5 pm.

The Electoral Committee eventually extended the election voting time to 7 pm to give people who received their voting codes late enough time to vote.

There were several complaints from Direct Entry students in the part 2 class as they found out late that they were not allowed to vote according to the IFUMSA constitution.

Despite the bumps experienced with the virtual voting method employed in the election, the electoral committee managed to put out a result that satisfied all candidates of the election. This is relatively great, considering that this was the first IFUMSA-wide virtual voting in the association.

According to the electoral committee, a total of 559 votes were cast out of 685 eligible voters.
