Student elections at Western deemed invalid

Western University and the University Students’ Council (USC) have announced that the 2012 USC Elections are deemed invalid and that voting has been halted.

This invalidation includes all USC elections as well as elections for undergraduate student positions to Western’s Board of Governors and Senate, as well as two referendum questions.

A decision was made after Western’s ITS department had determined that the USC elections portal, located on the Western server, was compromised.

It is anticipated that a new vote will be held the week of February 27th (the week after Reading Week).

More details will be forthcoming once new voting dates and times are set.
