Poll-ar regions

The final selection process for next year's University Students' Council president, starts today at 9:30 a.m. and will continue until 7:30 p.m. Thursday across the vast expanse known as Western.

Students need both parts of their student cards in order to vote.

The USC's chief returning officer, James Deans, added information on the dental plan referendum and bios on all presidential and divisional candidates will be at each polling station. "There is a certain amount of voters who have missed all the information," Deans said.

He added the USC is going to run a student survey and opinion poll about issues such as students' motivation for voting and how they choose a candidate. "It's a good way to gauge for next year's chief returning officer who to target for elections and how to target them."

Deputy returning officer Tim Morris said students who vote will receive a new cardholder for their student card, while quantities last.
