When you are eligible to vote in elections you will normally be sent an email with a link to vote or you will be directed to the voting page when you login to our website. All GCU students can vote in the Full Time Officer Elections.
Elections at GCU are carried out using Transferable Voting. Alternative Transferable Voting (ATV) is used for single place positions and Single transferable Voting (STV) is used for multiple place elections. In this election you indicate your first choice candidate with a ‘1’. You can also select as as many further choices as you wish, for example with a ‘2’ for your second choice, a ‘3’ for you third choice and so on. These additional choices have an important role to play in determining who the winners of the election are. Why vote?
This video explains how the STV voting works and why your additional choices matter:
