Voting was originally scheduled to close at 6:30 pm on March 13. However, UTM students were allowed more time because the campus closed at 1:00 pm on March 12 due to inclement weatherThe Elections and Referenda Committee [ERC] has ruled that since UTM students lost the ability to vote on campus for 5 hours, accommodations needed to be made,” said Munib Sajjad, president of the UTSU and chair of the ERC. 

St. George students will not receive any additional voting time because the UTSG campus did not close. The online voting service at utsu.simplyvoting.com will also close at 6:30 PM today as scheduled.

Election results will accordingly be announced after all votes, including those from UTM’s additional voting hours, are counted.
