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.
The Election Kit contains the forms and information for Members who are nominating for election to the Council of The Graduate Union. It includes an outline of the election process and the stages for submitting a nomination (Stage 1), as well as material to inform the voting decisions of Members of The Graduate Union (Stage 2). The Election Kit is available to download and also from the Graduate Union offices or by application to the Returning Officer.
