It’s that time of year when students have to make decisions about the type of governance they want to see in the Ryerson Students’ Union offices.

On The Record has put together all the important information student voters need.

Important dates

The timeline of the election will look different this year as the entire process, from nominations to final voting date, occurs within a 10-day span. There will be two fewer days of campaigning than there were last year. 

Election Debate – Feb. 1, 2022, at 3 p.m., via Zoom (https://zoom.us/j/99338210538?pwd=SnQ0MDJ3SGJlOXErQ2lJak9pZDFhdz09)

Voting Days – Feb. 2 – Feb. 4

All students will be voting through the my.ryerson portal in a similar process as last year.

The polls will close at 4 p.m., on Friday, Feb. 4, and the results of the election will be released by 6 p.m. that day, according to the Chief Returning Officer. 

Campaigning

Candidates will only have two days to campaign, which will mostly be done online due to the nature of the school’s reopening plan.

There are two slates — or groups of candidates running under a common platform — as well as some candidates running as independents.
