Each year, The Graduate Union of The University of Melbourne Incorporated (the Association) holds an election of Members to Council, the governing body of the Association.
The Notice of Election is sent to all Members Entitled to Vote early in February. Close of Nominations is mid-March and if a ballot is required (that is, the number of nominees exceeds the number of positions), voting closes a few days before the annual General Meeting (AGM) of the Association late in May.
For the 2018 elections to Council there are four candidates for election to three positions on Council. A poll is thus being held, with voting closing at 4:00 pm on Friday, 25th May, 2018.
Members Entitled to Vote will receive the voting material in the post, as well as the April edition of the Melbourne Graduate in which are the personal statements for each candidate.
Candidates are listed here, and on the voting paper, in the order in which names were determined by lot in the presence of witnesses.
Click on the name to see the personal statement, as well as additional web material provided by each candidate. An asterisk* indicates a retiring Council Member seeking re-election.
The three members elected in this poll will have terms expiring in May 2021.
