Council Elections- Voting opens 9am Fri 21 Nov

University Council Staff Elections

Voting opens at 9am Friday 21 November for the election of an Academic Staff and a Professional Staff member on University Council.

Please remember that under the University of Tasmania Act 1992 (sections 8(3) & 9(2)) that staff members elected to Council are responsible to the Council itself and are obliged to act in the interests of the University as a whole.  They are not 'representatives' of the groups that elect them, but are on Council to add to the perspectives around the Council table.

To be eligible to vote for the academic staff positions in these elections you must be a full-time or fractional academic staff member of the University. To be eligible to vote for the professional staff position you must be a full-time or fractional professional staff member of the University.  Casual staff are not eligible to vote.

Elections will be held by a secure electronic voting system via the University Intranet.   You must know your username and web password to access the ballot system.  If anyone else knows your password, please change it before voting – you can only submit one vote.  If you have forgotten your password, you will need to contact the Service desk to get your password changed. 

Your vote will be confidential and anonymous.

Voting commences Friday 21 November at 9am and closes on Friday 28 November at 5pm.
