This year, the elections will be held online, via an electronic ballot which will be sent out to members. This will ensure that only registered members can vote, and that each member can only vote once.
Your student ID number is required on the electronic ballot in order to authenticate you as a member of the Rocket Society. A separate list of the student numbers of all members has been created, with all other personal information removed. Your student number will be cross referenced to this anonymous list, in order to ensure that only the votes of registered members will count, without compromising voter anonymity. Our Chief Returning Officer (C.R.O.) will have access to the vote responses and will not have access to the full members list. The C.R.O. is an official, appointed to ensure the fairness of the election process. They are not eligible to run for a position and cannot publicly endorse any candidate. Once the votes have been counted, the student numbers will be deleted from the responses to preserve anonymity.
Read below to find out more about which executive positions are available, and the responsibilities they entail. If you are interested in running for an executive position, send us an email indicating which position you intend to run for. Note that nominees must be registered, active members of the club and students enrolled in an undergraduate, or graduate program at York University.
