The Elections Governance Committee (EGC) has made the difficult decision to hold a completely virtual election in this upcoming election period. The decision was announced Wednesday, February 2nd during the second part of the USC council meeting.

“This decision was made after actively monitoring the COVID-19 situation. In order to ensure an equitable and accessible election process for candidates and voters, online programming was deemed to be the safest course of action,” said Joman Elsays, Chief Returning Officer, EGC.
