FAQ

How many positions can I nominate for?

You may nominate for up to 2 executive positions, 3 management positions and as many convenor and representative positions as you would like.

Where do I submit my nominations?

You may submit your nomination form at the UQMS office or email appointed nominations to secretary@uqms.org and elected nominations to elections@uqms.org.

Can I set up a Facebook page to campaign?

Yes, as long as you open it maximum 48 hours before voting opens and it is not affiliated with any UQMS pages. See the Electoral and Voting By-Laws 4.8 and 8.1 for more information. 

Who do I contact if I didn't get an email with a link to vote?

Please send an email to elections@uqms.org.

Can I run on a joint ticket with my friends?

Some positions (e.g. May Ball, Trephine, Med Revue Convenors) are held by a group, and you are welcome to nominate with your friends (see Forms 2 and 4). However, individuals running for different UQMS roles held by one person may not run for a joint ticket and may not provide endorsements for one another. See Electoral and Voting By-Laws 4.8 for more information. 

What is the “Re-Open the Vote” option on the voting form?

This allows voters to call for nominations to be re-opened if they feel there is no suitable candidate for the position. If it is selected by at least 50%+1 of the voting members, nominations for that position will reopen and a second voting period will be organised to fill the position. See Electoral and Voting By-Laws 7.6 and 10.4 for more information.

I’m not a member of UQMS - Can I still run for a role?

Only UQMS Members are eligible to run for nomination (Electoral and Voting By-Laws 4.1). If you are unsure of your membership, please email secretary@uqms.org. To be come a member click here. Please note your nominator and seconder should also be UQMS members!
