Election Process

The IHPME-GSU is headed by a democratically elected executive. The nomination and voting period occurs every spring.

Students will be allowed to nominate and vote themselves or a colleague for roles on the following year’s IHPME GSU. Each nomination is counted as a vote towards the nominated individual. At the end of the nomination/voting period, those with the most votes for a particular role will assume that role for the next year.

In the event of a tie, a second round of targeted voting for the role in question will take place. Each candidate will prepare a short biography to be distributed to the student body and students will be asked to once again vote between the candidates that tied.

Any vacant positions after the nomination/voting period will be filled on an ongoing basis based on interest and targeted reach outs to incoming students.
