Election

Floor nominations

As a number of the committee positions are currently uncontested, it is possible for floor nominations to be taken.

At the meeting, when the relevant uncontested position is called the Chair will put a call to the floor to enquire whether any attendee wishes to stand for election for that office. Any person who indicates such an intention will be granted no more than 1 minute to speak to their nomination ("to speak to their ability to perform the duties of the office”). Information about the duties of each office can be found in the Election Guide.

The following positions are currently uncontested:

  • President

  • Vice-President (Activities)

  • Internal Education Officer

  • Competitions Officer (x2)

  • Careers (Local and In-house Lawyers) Officer

  • Information Technology Officer

  • Social Convenor

  • Sports Convenor

  • Student Representative

If there is one floor nominee, they will be elected against a vote of no confidence. If there is more than one floor nominee, they will be elected against each other.

To be eligible to nominate from the floor, you must be a current academic member of Griffith LSA. If you are not yet a member, you can become one by following these instructions. You should aim to become a member as soon as possible, as membership applications must be processed prior to the meeting. If you are unsure of your membership status, please contact our Secretary by email at secretary@griffithlsa.org.au.

Note: This page incorrectly understated the number of uncontested positions. As of 19 September 2019 at 8:42 pm the listed positions are correct.

voting

Voting will take place only in the meeting. When the election is called, ballot papers will be distributed to all eligible voters by the Returning Officer and speeches for the S3 and the vice presidential offices will be called. Floor nominees will be taken. Voting will then occur through secret ballot, with the results handed to the Returning Officer at the conclusion of the business item.
