Candidate error on UTSU ballots


A candidate who dropped out is still on the UTSU elections ballot.

Luis Moreno, formerly a candidate for VP external, is still listed along with Nicky Bhatty and Grayce Slobodian even though he dropped out of the running on March 6. This is confirmed at UTM and may also be the case at the other campuses.

There is no indication on the ballot that Moreno dropped out. When poll clerks were asked whether they knew about the error, they replied that they didn’t and apologized.

It is not clear what effect the error will have on vote counts for the position, or what will be done with votes for Moreno.

The online version of the ballot at was correct at press time. It is unclear whether it was accurate when voting began.
