2022 Spring Elections

Thank you for your interest in the 2022 CCSS Spring Elections. The voice of students at Camosun depends on voters!

If you are a student who wants to make a difference, become involved in your community, and contribute to the campus environment, you should consider running in the elections. Being a student representative is a great opportunity for you to build experience, advocate for students, represent the needs of Camosun’s diverse student population, and make an impact during your time at Camosun College.

Important Dates

Nomination Period: March 3 – March 16

During the Nomination Period, prospective candidates must register their candidacy, platform statement, and student nominations. Candidates are required to collect the full names and student numbers of five CCSS members (Camosun students) who wish to nominate their candidacy. 

Campaign Period: March 22 – April 6

The CCSS may reimburse candidates up to a maximum of $25 for marketing costs provided the candidate produces itemized receipts.

Voting Period: April 4 – April 6

Voting will take place online via electronic ballot delivered to your email register with the college. Members of the Society may vote with one ballot for each of the Council positions for which they are entitled to. If only one nomination is received for a particular office, the election will be by a yes/no vote on a ballot.
