The Nomination Period opens in late August every year.
OCSU Election timeline
Every Election looks a little bit different, but it always follows the same format. Here’s a (very basic) timeline of events:
The Nomination Period ends in mid-September. Nominees who have completed and submitted the necessary documents by the deadline may start campaigning the day after the Nomination Period Ends.
Polling takes place online via ElectionBuddy. Every eligible voter is emailed a one-time link to the ballot. Members can vote for Candidates across all campuses, not just their own.
Polls are open for at least 48 hours.
